About me

Location Los Angeles, California
Introduction I am a copyright/First Amendment/media/entertainment attorney with a strong interest in politics. I have worked as an associate at O'Melveny & Myers LLP, as Senior Counsel, Content Protection Litigation at Fox, and as Litigation Counsel at NBC Universal. From July-November 2008, I served as Special Counsel on Senator John McCain's presidential campaign where, among other responsibilities, I handled the campaign's copyright, trademark, and other IP issues. Prior to law school, I worked as a political reporter in Washington, DC at Roll Call newspaper, where I covered congressional elections, the term limits movement, campaign finance reform, and various other issues related to Congress' internal politics and administration. Before that, I was Assistant Editor of the Cook Political Report, where I covered campaigns for the House of Representatives. I also served as a consultant to CBS News during the 1994 election cycle, helping prepare producers and correspondents for the election night broadcast.
