I was raised and attended public schools in Hallowell and Auburn, going on to Bowdoin College. After graduation, I served three years on active duty in the US Army. Upon my honorable discharge, I returned home and enrolled in the University of Maine School of Law. I spent over 40 years as a practicing attorney in Maine before retiring at the end of 2018.
