I am most excited to work on projects that… Bridge the partisan divide in service of our common challenges. I believe that our democracy depends on conversations across political, generational, geographic, and ideological lines. I want to facilitate those conversations to ensure we are all listening to and learning from one another.
I am looking for partners that can help me… see the world more fully. Learn about issues I care about. Better understand (and help to solve) complex problems.
A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… understanding that my love of storytelling could manifest itself across a multitude of professional endeavors.
Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… embrace the growing notion of a lawyer as a problem-solver and advocate who can contribute, far beyond legal advice, to a wide array of organizations and issues.
