I grew up in Lawrence, Massachusetts to parents with basically a conservative Catholic Democrat world view. As a kid growing up in the Seventies, I remember many debates around the supper table involving Vietnam, Watergate and the other issues of the day. I have been interested in politics and government ever since. I received my J.D. from New England School of Law, Cum Laude, in 1990. I received my B.A. in Political Science, Magna Cum Laude, from UMass Lowell in 1985. I have been a private practice attorney since 1990 and have been teaching at the undergraduate level since 2004.
