After graduation he started accounting (like his Aunt Carolyn) eventually moving to the D.C. area to work for the law firm of Wiley Rein LLP where he made many friends over the decade plus he was employed there.
ln his spare time he loved to volunteer, eat donuts, listen to rap music, watch Survivor and Big Brother, play cards, get free movies from the library, talk basketball, take advantage of the many cultural events in Washington D.C. and play soccer every weekend.
He spoke to his mother on the phone daily (when she wasn't visiting him). He made friends with practically anyone he crossed paths with.
His permanent smile, infectious laughter and kind spirit will be greatly missed.
