Hi! I research and write on law, policy, and technology, with a focus on telecommunications, internet, copyright, and disability law. I’m an Associate Professor of Law at Colorado Law, where I serve as the Faculty Director of the Telecom and Platforms Initiative at the Silicon Flatirons Center. My work has or will be published in the Stanford Law Review, California Law Review, and Indiana Law Journal, and in 2023 I joined the author team for Communications Law and Policy: Cases and Materials, an open-access telecommunications law casebook, with Jerry Kang and Alan Butler.

From 2013-2023, I directed the Samuelson-Glushko Technology Law & Policy Clinic (TLPC) as an Assistant, Associate, and full Clinical Professor at Colorado Law, working with student attorneys on a wide range of law and policy issues before a wide range of agencies, courts, legislatures, and other bodies, including the Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress, and the World Intellectual Property Organization. Before joining the faculty at Colorado Law, I was a staff attorney and graduate fellow in First Amendment and media law at the Institute for Public Representation at Georgetown Law and a law clerk for Justice Nancy E. Rice on the Colorado Supreme Court.

I earned my LL.M in Advocacy with distinction from Georgetown Law and my J.D. from Colorado Law, where I was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal on Telecommunications and High Technology Law (JTHTL), now the Colorado Technology Law Journal (CTLJ). I earned my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Colorado School of Engineering.
