Joined the Firm:

Little Known Fact:
I adore celebrity chef watching and take clandestine cell phone shots of the likes of Rick Bayless and Herbert Keller.

Client or Business Philosophy:
Business development for me is as much about growing as a practitioner as it is about leads generating.  I am constantly looking for avenues to improve how I interact with our clients. 

Responsiveness and time management.  I don’t juggle but I can handle several balls in the air.

Elaborate desk pranks, celebrity gossip, texting my twin sister, candy, white cheddar popcorn

Favorite Degenkolb Story:
I like to play with toys. And there are always plenty around the office.  At an Oakland office event, we built a "building of sticks" on an isolated platform and demonstrated how to make it tumble.  It was like our own little shaketable.  Someone also has a miniture Frogger game that is a secret addiction.

Special Interests:
Cooking, barefoot athletics, historic preservation
