WHAT I LOVE

I admire government and politics. I'm the person who comes home from class and turns on the news. In my free time, I have the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post up on my computer, looking for the latest headlines. On election nights, you'll find me buried in a spreadsheet, predicting what the final returns will look like by the end of the night (or week: shoutout to my five hours of sleep during election week 2020). 

Law, particularly constitutional law, is my escape. When the Supreme Court is planning to release opinions, you'll find me hitting the refresh button until the document releases. When there's a new First Amendment case about to hit the docket, don't text me; I'll be reading the legal briefs (but I promise I'll text back later). Is there a case you think I might find interesting? Should I be writing about it on my blog? Please tell me about it.


I am often asked what I want to do when I (eventually) graduate. The short answer is that I don't know exactly. But I can't wait to find out.
