I am a huge sports fan, whether it is watching in person, on TV, or playing them myself. I also enjoy fishing, hunting or just hanging out and enjoying life. Prior to law school my legal experience was limited to watching the movie My Cousin Vinny numerous times. One thing I am really proud of is that both of my grandfathers played a pivotal role in government in Ghana, West Africa. One of them served as a Supreme Court Justice and the other as a minister/ambassador. My future plans include practicing criminal law as well as serving in government in some capacity.
