He later worked for about 10 years as a computer programmer before going to law school. After law school, he clerked for the Honorable James Brady in the federal Middle District of Louisiana from 2005-2006, and has been in private practice since. He joined TWPD at the end of 2019. He lives in Prairieville with his wife and canine family members.
