I have been a lecturer with the Department of Communication Studies since 2009. I received my B.A. in Communication Studies and Political Science from UCLA in 2005 and my J.D. from UCLA School of Law in 2008.

I am currently a practicing litigator with Reed Smith LLP, one of the 20 largest global law firms.  I specialize in real estate and commercial litigation and have represented major financial institutions as well as a national transportation entity, among others.  I have also had experience in high stakes litigation involving copyright infringement and defamation disputes and have litigated against high profile figures in the entertainment industry.

My area of focus at UCLA relates to the First Amendment and freedom of speech and its impact on media, society and politics.
