What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?

I was named partner at Robinson + Cole last year, which was great. The handshake and look of pride from my father was even better. He’s the one who made so many things possible for me and who inspired me with his unparalleled work ethic and commitment to his family.

How are you involved in the community?

I served as the second chair of Hartford Young Professional & Entrepreneurs (HYPE), helping to significantly expand the organization. I also served on the board of directors for the American School for the Deaf and am currently on the board of the Connecticut Forum.

What do you like to do outside of work?

When the kids are asleep and I get to have dinner with my wife (40 Under 40 well before me) and discuss her marketing business. Spending the weekends trekking with my son to every farm, park and museum in the state.

Four reasons why you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty:

• Named partner at Robinson + Cole.

• Leading firm’s initiatives on international data privacy regulation and emerging technologies.

• Organized and serve as co-chair of the firm’s Litigation Academy, providing litigation and trial training for junior associates.

• Recognized as a New Leader of the Law by the Connecticut Law Tribune.
