I am a civil litigation attorney based in the Los Angeles metro area. My primary area of practice is entertainment and intellectual property litigation where I have had the opportunity to work on a number of notable cases including an idea theft case involving the hit BBC America television series "Orphan Black", a trademark infringement case against R&B artist Chris Brown, and a right of publicity case involving Chris Soules of ABC's "The Bachelor". Prior to law school, I worked as a sports writer and web editor at Deseret Digital Media.
