|EDUCATION||Princeton (BA), Harvard (JD)|
|PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION||My brother and I decided to go into law because it was something we could do together even though we had no money.|
|CIVIC EFFORT||My wife, Anne, and I contribute over $250,000 annually to a conditional cash payment program supporting at-risk youth in Jacksonville. The program pays teenagers who have been in contact with the justice system. They must participate in mentorship, stay out of jail and meet achievable goals they set for themselves, like attending school and getting a job.|
|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I bake bread from scratch, including every Christmas to give to all of the neighbors on our street.|
|FLORIDA LOVE||All that Florida has to offer. I love fishing from my kayak and riding my bike to work.|
|READING||Living to Tell the Tale, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez|
