I am a Candidate for Juris Doctor and Business Law Certificate in the Class of 2018 at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, where I am the Editor-in-Chief of Volume 48 The University of Memphis Law Review and a three-time recipient of the Faculty Emeritus Law Scholarship. I worked as a graduate research assistant to Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law Steven J. Mulroy and served on the Honor Council in the 2016-2017 academic year. I am an active member of the Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy Studies. My scholarly interests focus primarily on constitutional law, particularly the intersection of the First Amendment and campaign finance law.

In the summer of 2016, I was fortunate to serve as a judicial intern in the chambers of the Honorable Jon P. McCalla, Senior United States District Judge in the Western District of Tennessee in Memphis. During my internship, I analyzed two issues of first impression under the Tennessee Constitution: whether statutory caps on punitive damages, Tenn. Code Ann. § 29-39-104 (2016), violate a plaintiff’s right to trial by jury or separation of powers. Judge McCalla’s decision in the case that prompted these questions incorporated my analysis. I hope to serve as a term clerk for a federal judge after law school.

My wide-ranging professional interests center in business law, particularly civil litigation, including contracts, torts, administrative law, and corporate law. I remain interested in civil liberties litigation, and I hope to develop an appellate First Amendment practice one day.

In 2011 I earned a master of public policy from American University in Washington, D.C., and I earned a bachelor of arts in philosophy and political science from Belmont University in my native Nashville, TN in 2009. While in Washington, I worked as a policy analyst for a trade association of information technology companies, a new media strategist for a think tank, and a channel lead for a cutting-edge political and industry communications consulting firm before founding my own strategic communications practice.

After returning to Nashville in early 2014, I continued consulting remotely while I taught an undergraduate course on the American government at my undergraduate alma mater. I married my wife Emily in September 2014, and we bought our first home in West Nashville in early 2015. I hope to return to the Music City to practice law and become a Nashville Predators season ticket holder after law school and a judicial clerkship.
