ABOUT

I am a recent graduate of Indiana University's flagship campus in Bloomington, Indiana. I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in economics, political science, and journalism. My degree was notated with the Hutton Honors College notation and a special notation in the university's Media School. 

Born in northern Virginia, I am an avid follower of politics, government, and current events. You can find me organizing foreign policy workshops, bringing speakers from the nation's capital to campus, or reading the newest book on housing policy.

ABOUT ME

WHAT I LOVE

I admire government and policy. 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 end of the week: shoutout to my five hours of sleep during election week 2020). 

I take up new projects all the time. Recently, I've been writing about the statistics of sports, the federal budget, and banking. You can read my work on my blog. What else will you find me doing from time to time? While I don't think I have an interest in practicing law, I do love reading about it. 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 graduate. The short answer is that I don't know exactly. But I can't wait to find out.
