I attended Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas for high school where I graduated with honors and then moved out to California to attend Loyola Marymount University to continue what the Jesuits like to refer to as "Cura Personalis" or "Education of the Whole Person." At LMU I majored in English Literature, but I also had the opportunity to engage in creative writing of all types and flavors including but not limited to poetry, fictional prose, playwriting, and various forms of journalism. I minored in Archaeology, which blended my love of history with my passion for anthropology. I acted as the Assistant Curator at LMU's on campus museum, which grew during my tenure by 60% in terms of donations and acquisitions. As the Curator I had the opportunity to give lectures and tutor college-aged students in history, art, architecture, and historical preservation. I graduated Loyola Marymount University with honors, and decided to attend Southwestern Law School. At Southwestern, I specialized in criminal law, labor law, civil procedure, and constitutional law. I graduated Southwestern, attained my Juris Doctor, and sat for the California Bar Exam in July. Above all things, I prize academic prowess and the desire to learn and master more. As such, I chose a career in which I know I can act as a constant student and a constant teacher. Such a level of dedication is required, in fact, because the law is fluid and in a constant state of flux.
I tutor in history, English literature of all types (writing, reading comprehension, analytical thinking), government, and politics. Throughout my educational and professional career I have been regarded as an exceptional writer. I have actually had the opportunity to edit many publications which have appeared in print as well as online. As such, I am adept at aiding students in how to be their own editors and how to see the gaps in their writing and where they need improvement. My favorite subject to tutor is history. I especially love world history.
My hobbies include keeping physically active. I love to play basketball and beach volleyball. I enjoy playing golf, but I'm not very good. Golf is an activity which I picked up in my adult life. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I also enjoy watching movies, reading good books, hiking, cooking, and generally keeping an open mind. I constantly find new activities that I enjoy.
