Originally from Rochester, NY, I attended Syracuse University, majoring in political science and policy studies, before moving to Washington D.C. I interned and worked at a number of think tanks in here in D.C. before starting on as a Legislative Assistant in the House of Representatives. After a few years on the Hill, I took a job as a law clerk/legislative director for a lobbying/litigation firm here in D.C. Prior to this position, I considered my career to be primarily in politics and policy, however the litigation work I was assigned convinced me I should go to law school. I am currently a 2L at Georgetown University Law Center and recently externed at the Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division. I am Editor-In-Chief of the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy, a journal which explores conservative and libertarian legal and policy ideas.
