I was born and grew up in Duluth, MN. I attended college at New York University, and law school at the University of Minnesota. From 2012–2017, I have been living in Europe, working on my Ph.D. in Law and Economics at the University of Bologna. I was hired as a Visiting Assistant Professor for George Mason University starting Spring term 2017. In my spare time, I enjoy playing chess, tennis, and the piano.
