Before joining Stites & Harbison as an associate, Bruce served as a field representative to Indiana Congressman Baron Hill, 1999 to 2004. As a field representative, Bruce assisted local communities and organizations in securing federal appropriations and grants. He also worked on economic development projects involving federal investment.
Bruce volunteers for the Louisville Legal Aid Society and Gilda's Club of Kentuckiana, where he is a member of the board of directors. He has previously served on the boards of directors for One Southern Indiana, Personal Counseling Services, and the Kentucky-Indiana Exchange (KIX). Bruce's most recent passion—inspired by his youngest daughter—is advocating for children with congenital heart defects and other pre-existing health conditions.
Bruce tries to exercise as often as possible in order to keep up with his wife Mari-Elise, three children, and the family puppy. Exercise is also important to counterbalance Bruce’s love of food and drink. Bruce still finds ways to "scratch his political itch"—mostly by supporting good candidates for public office.
