Professional enjoyment: working with folks who are trying to resolve or avoid some problems with their friends and neighbors. Working with lawyers when the folk cannot handle the issues without us.

Your inspiration: My father introduced me to Judge Lybrook from the Court of Appeals when I was in high school and told me that he had always wanted to be a lawyer, but could not afford college before World War II; then with the kids after the war, he could not find the time.

Why bar association involvement: It is a reminder of the best of the profession. The lawyers I work with at the bar are ones whose time management skills and professionalism make them easy to work with in cases. The lawyers in cases I have a hard time with are ones I never see at local or state bar events.

If not a lawyer: My Shakespeare professor suggested I drop the law school idea and teach Shakespeare – that might have done it.

Fav hobbies: walking, golf and reading.

Fav book or author and current reading: Favorite author, Stephen Terrell. Currently reading John Gilstrap’s "End Game" and Ron Baker’s "Measure What Matters to Customers."

Fav vacation spot: Fort Myers, Fla., when there is a foot of snow on the ground in Indiana.

Fav food or restaurant: Sangiovese Ristorante (I’m hoping it reopens soon in a new location).

Top of my bucket list: a bigger bucket.
