About Me

I am student at Loyola Law school in Los Angeles, and I am currently in my third year of law school. I am primarily interested in the areas of labor, sports, media and intellectual property. I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a degree in communication in 2012. Before attending BYU-Idaho, I spent two years as a missionary in south Texas for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After my mission I enrolled in BYU-Idaho's fast track program which allows students to complete 3 full semesters per year. During my time at BYU-Idaho, I was the news and sports editor for the campus newspaper.

After BYU-Idaho, I worked as a sports writer and web editor for the new media team at Deseret Digital Media for the website DeseretNews.com. As a journalist I authored articles about professional and college sports, conducted topical research using public records and the internet, interviewed coaches and athletes, synthesized my research, and edited articles for daily publication. I also implemented a company-wide system for responding to customer feedback, trained interns and new hires, and managed the placement of content on the company website.

I am currently enrolled in the Entertainment Law Advocacy concentration program ay Loyola, which combines the specialized study of intellectual property law, labor law and the legal landscape of the entertainment industry, with practical skills such as trial advocacy and legal drafting. I have completed academic classes in entertainment, copyright, trademark, and privacy, as well as skills classes such trial advocacy and legal drafting. I recently completed a class called Law and Practice with the Hollywood Guilds, which addressed the labor practices and collective bargaining agreements between the studios and the major above the line labor organizations in entertainment industry.
