I am a 2016 graduate of Loyola Law school in Los Angeles and a member of both the State Bar of California and the Bar of the Central District of California. I am primarily interested in the areas of media, privacy, intellectual property, and sports. For my undergraduate studies, I attended Brigham Young University-Idaho where I worked as the news and sports editor for the campus newspaper before graduating with a degree in journalism in 2012.
Before law school, I worked as a sports writer and web editor at Deseret Digital Media. As a journalist I primarily covered the Utah Jazz, the BYU and University of Utah football teams, and Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer. I also had the opportunity to served as a spanish speaking missionary in south Texas for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 2007 to 2009.
While at Loyola, I was one of only three students in my graduating class to complete the Entertainment Law Advocacy concentration program, which combined the study of topics such as intellectual property, licensing and labor law, with litigation skills such as legal drafting and trial advocacy. Since January 2016, I have worked at the Kernan Law Firm as part of NuMedia Studios, a boutique entertainment litigation firm located on the Jim Henson Lot in Hollywood.
