I'm a Boston-area public interest lawyer, activist, and writer.

I recently concluded a decade as the Legal Director at Free Speech For People, fighting for free and fair elections, challenging corruption at the highest levels of government, and fighting the influence of unchecked corporate power and big money in politics. Starting in May, I'll be Chief Counsel at American Oversight, leading a team of dedicated lawyers fighting for truth, accountability, and democracy by enforcing the public's right to government records.

In my copious free time, I write fiction and comedy, and play music.

Previously, I was Assistant Regional Counsel at the New England Regional Office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where I received four national awards (including a National Gold Medal for Exceptional Service). I’ve clerked for two federal judges. Before law school, I worked at Microsoft (on Word and Office), on a political campaign, and in nonprofit technical consulting.
