Hire me

I'm a California attorney focused on Internet privacy, neutrality, policy, and compliance.

At TRUSTe, I create intelligent and insightful content to help global, enterprise clients understand and assess their privacy obligations while minimizing privacy-related risk. In addition, I consult for numerous companies, building and implementing privacy programs that emphasize safe data practices. My professional experience includes privacy enforcement and regulation at the Office of the California Attorney General, Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit and working in-house for various technology companies.

In law school, I earned my specialization certificate in Intellectual Property and served as Editor-in-Chief of Golden Gate University Law Review, which fostered my tremendous appreciation of academia, writing, editing, teaching, and working with others. My own Law Review article, which focuses on Fourth Amendment issues related to geolocational data in social media can be found at 43 GOLDEN GATE UNIV. L. REV. 459 (2013).

My personal interests include yoga, running, philosophy, music, art, ballet, architecture, and writing.

Favorite current Supreme Court Justice: Anthony Kennedy.

Favorite Supreme Court Justice emeritus: Louis Brandeis.

Three things I can never refuse: a challenge, a dance party, and a homemade chocolate chip cookie.
