"I do what I do because I love working with entreprenuers. I enjoy helping to build companies. My satisfaction is seeing a group of entrepreneurs put a company together, raise funding, hire people, develop a product, grow a customer base, and either exit or continue to run the company and become successful. I've worked with companies at every stage of their development, and I learn something new each time. I have done this enough times that I am pretty good at figuring out what companies need at each stage of their life cycle from a legal perspective."
