I have attended public schools my entire life. While other educational environments work well for other people, this was the ideal situation for me. While no school is perfect, the public schools in Lewiston do a good job. I graduated from Lewiston High School in 1997. I began studies at the University of Idaho in the fall of 1997. I received my undergraduate in Electrical Engineering from there in December 2001. After working full time at Potlatch Corporation I resumed my studies at the University of Idaho, this time in the College of Law. I received my Juris Doctorate in May 2005.
