(1) List your judicial experience (courts and years)
Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, General Division, 2015-Present.

(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
As both a prosecutor and defense attorney, I have a unique perspective, having represented both the State of Ohio and individuals charged with felony criminal offenses.

(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
I am running for re-election because I want to continue representing the community in which I grew up. Having the experience of being a prosecutor, defense attorney, and now judge, I am uniquely able to view the impact of cases on all parties to a case, in both criminal and civil cases.
