Welcome; this website is a collection of my scholarly work. I work as a litigator and have published several scholarly articles on law and religion, as well as on the legal implications of the blockchain. I am also an editor at Staseos.net and my legal commentary has appeared on The Stream.
My practice is currently focused on issues affecting religious organizations, including religious liberty and related areas. I previously worked in general litigation for a regional law firm. In 2018–2019, I was a judicial law clerk at the Augusta County Circuit Court in Staunton, Virginia. I received my J.D. from Washington & Lee University School of Law in 2018, where I was active in moot court and was awarded 2nd Place, Best Advocate at the DC Regional, ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition for 2016–2017.
I was also president of my school’s chapter of the Christian Legal Society and completed internships with the general counsel of Cru—an international ministry organization—and with the Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office in Manchester, New Hampshire.
