I live in Anchorage with my 2 sons, JJ (6) and Calvin (4). I recently left the state after serving as an assistant attorney general. Now I’m associate general counsel and chief ethics and compliance officer with Bering Straits Native Corporation.

I’m grateful for our teachers and community at CIA. My life would have been very different without those positive relationships. I especially appreciate Gary and Jill Leiter’s good example of compassion and humility (and installation of a love of hiking), Miss Becky’s constant kindness to students whether preschool or junior / senior high, and Tatiana (Khmelyova) Lott’s encouragement and continued friendship. And Mr. C for pointing not just to academic learning but also to wisdom that stands the test of time.
