Neil has a varied background in business. After eight years in a private law practice with a large firm, he transitioned his career to business. Because he is a "numbers guy," he gravitated towards finance, working primarily with small businesses. Neil holds a degree in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!), a J.D. from SMU and a Master's in Tax from NYU. In his free time, Neil enjoys being outdoors backpacking and hiking with his son and his dog, kayaking and sailing.
