What are you proud to have been involved with at University of Oregon?
I am proud to be the editor in chief of the Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation for the 2019-20 publishing year. I am also proud to have served dutifully on the board of OUTLaws, the UO Law School LGBTQ+ student organization, for the last two years.

To pass the bar exam and get a job. I think that’s the goal of every law student. Long term, ten to fifteen years down the road, I think I would enjoy and make a good professor or judge.
