I am an Assistant Professor of Law at the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law. I teach Contracts and serve as Co-Director of the Community Development Law Clinic.

Prior to joining the law faculty at UDC, I was a Visiting Associate Professor of Clinical Law and Friedman Fellow with the Small Business & Community Economic Development Clinic at the George Washington University Law School.

I previously worked as a Project Finance Associate with an international law firm, and subsequently as a Law & Policy Fellow with the Poverty & Race Research Action Council in Washington, D.C.

Prior to entering law, I worked as a strategy consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton, focusing on environmental policy analysis and sustainable development.

I graduated from MIT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, where I was a Ronald McNair Scholar and received the Alpha Phi Alpha Distinguished Collegiate Award.

I also completed an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University, and a J.D. at Harvard Law School, where I was Vice-President of the Board of Student Advisers, and a member of the National Executive Board of the National Black Law Students Association.

My research interests include the intersection of racial justice and community economic development, technology and the law, and promoting economic justice through transactional law practice.
