Professional Experience

I am a full time practicing attorney, licensed in NY and CA. My practice area is primarily intellectual property and entertainment. I am not looking to freelance in the legal space, since I have my own firm but I am looking for freelance writing opportunities as I am a oft published freelance writer. I have written Op-Ed articles on topical legal as well as non legal issues which have been published and also write and have published several travel articles for major publications and their online affiliates. I have appeared as on On Air Correspondent providing legal analysis on entertainment and criminal legal issues. I hold a J.D. from New York University School of Law and a B.A. in Journalism from University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism.
