The Center is home to an incredible faculty and host to the top minds at the intersection of law, science, and technology. But we also attract the brightest student scholars around; you should meet them.

- I’m an adrenaline junkie.
- I ride bulls at amateur rodeos (4.3 seconds is my best time) and I often road trip to Utah ski resorts.
- I’ve played guitar for about ten years. My idols are Page, Hendrix, the Three Kings (B.B., Albert, and Freddie), and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
- I recently restored a late-1970s Marantz record player and have begun a record collection of my own. I’m convinced that everything sounds better on vinyl.
I met my wife while I was in the last year of my undergrad. We’ve been married for about two and a half years and we’re expecting our first child in May 2020. I came to law school to explore the intersection of the law with emerging technologies, so I was thrilled to be selected as one of the LSI Center Scholars. I’m a soon-to-be-published author with the Richmond Journal of Law and Technology. That article, which combines economic theory with antitrust, class action, and consumer protection law, will be published later this fall. I also recently co-authored a paper on planned obsolescence for a professor of the ASU School of Design which was just presented at an international conference on product lifecycles and sustainability in Berlin. I’m spending my last year of law school taking practical classes and mentoring 2Ls in my capacity as one of the Senior Note and Comment Editors of Jurimetrics. Once I pass the Bar, I’ll clerk for Judge Samuel Anderson Thumma of the Arizona Court of Appeals and hopefully end up working for a plaintiffs’ class action firm, or in the consumer protection division of the Arizona Attorney General’s office, or for the FTC.
