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, where I also worked as the news and sports editor for the campus newspaper. 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 BYU-Idaho, I worked as a sports writer and web editor at Deseret Digital Media for the website DeseretNews.com. As a journalist I primarliy covered the Utah Jazz, the BYU and University of Utah football teams, and Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer. 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.


Currently, I am in my third year at Loyola where I am enrolled in the Entertainment Law Advocacy concentration program. As part of the concentration I have taken specialized classes such as Motion Picture Production and Finance where I had the opportunity to participate in weekly negotiation and drafting assignments using actual major studio forms and rights agreements. Although my academic focus has been primarily on litigation, I am seeking any opportunity to work in the areas of sports and entertainment law.
