Being the attorney for a company that is always looking for new and better ways to serve customers keeps me on my toes. On a given day I could be working on any of a dozen issues. I dabble all over the place- everything from advising on the launching of new products and services, to negotiating developing business relationships.
A lot of my work here at Block is working on contracts, though. Whether it’s for the equipment, parts, or service division, I help create contract documents that aim to spell out everyone’s expectations so there are no surprises as a deal is being carried out. I probably won’t work directly with many of our customers, but hopefully our contracts will allow us to come through on our promise to say what we mean and do what we say!
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA and still think of myself as a southern Californian, even though I’m currently living in the Seattle area. I married the girl I took to prom and we have a son named Luke that was born in 2013. I constantly remind him that, “Luke, I am your Father!” He’s not nearly as amused as I am by that. I like doing things myself. Whether I'm remodeling my kitchen, changing transmissions on my ’67 Mustang, or replacing power capacitors on my flatscreen TV (that actually worked!), I like a good challenge. I also love my San Diego Chargers and Padres!
