This blog contains my musings on various issues, largely focusing on free speech and the internet. My commentary on tech and legal issues has been featured in the Guardian, ArsTechnica, and on CBC Radio’s The Current, among other venues.
I graduated cum laude / Order of the Coif from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California. I passed the July 2012 California Bar Exam but am not yet licensed. At Loyola, I was an editor on the International and Comparative Law Review.
I received my B.A. from Whittier College, where I had the honor of serving as president of the Associated Students of Whittier College and helped to re-establish a co-ed “society” (Whittier’s equivalent of fraternities and sororities) after a 15-year underground period.
After graduating from Whittier, I worked for MySpace.com as a Security Abuse Specialist — essentially tracking down security threats to the site. My tech experience was an outgrowth of working on a website covering the computer games The Sims and SimCity, which led to consulting with its developers while in high school. As a result, my name’s in the credits of SimCity 3000 somewhere. Look, ma, I’m famous!
I maintain a dangerous addiction to music of all types and frequently travel long distances for concerts. I’m also an amateur photographer currently experimenting with time-lapse and High Dynamic Range photography. I live in LA’s Historic District.
