About Me

Serious headshot!

I’m one part retired semi-pro baseball player, one part amateur short-order cook, a third part coffee snob, two parts sleep-deprived family man, several parts technology and privacy lawyer. I am currently the lawyer at Hubble, the first direct-to-consumer contact lens company. Before joining Hubble I was an associate with Hogan Lovells' leading Privacy and Cybersecurity practice, and am admitted to practice in California and DC. I’m interested in public policy, technology, and high-risk, high-reward businesses. Here's my linkedin profile, if you're in to that sort of thing.

School-wise, I have a JD-MBA from Georgetown, where I was an InSITE Fellow and advised companies such as Naytev, and wrote a legal note for the Georgetown Law Journal about how the government should use better math (i.e., real options valuation) to determine whether issuing a regulation is a good idea.  

Before enrolling at Georgetown, I helped run College Forward, a non-profit college access and persistence program in Austin, Texas, where I focused on expansion, strategic planning, and development. While in Austin I lived through what were the two hottest summers ever recorded in Texas. 

I played baseball at Amherst College, and after that I spent year as a professional baseball player in Europe (in Belgium, and yes, they play baseball in Belgium). I’ve also worked as an AmeriCorps*VISTA member and at a farmers’ market. 

I am a Washington, DC native, and therefore support home rule and the Caps.
