How They Got There

Undergrad degree:  Government

Favorite class in college:  Congressional Elections with Sean Theriault

Graduate degree:  Currently pursuing a law degree

College to career:  I worked in China for Dell Computers immediately after graduating from college. I then returned to UT a year later to start law school. During law school I was asked to consider taking some time off to work on Senator McCain's presidential campaign. Over two years later I'm still enjoying my time working with a great team.

Career influences:  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to serve as the Student Government President at UT Austin and the Student Regent for the UT System. These opportunities allowed me to experience politics and government first-hand.

The Ups and Downs
I really enjoy all the travel associated with my job and the interesting people I get to meet and work with on a daily basis.

Get involved. If you have an interest - UT has an avenue to pursue it. If you can't find the avenue, then create it. UT let's you do that too!
