1. Quick bio:
Hometown: Bellingham, Washington - "The City of Subdued Excitement"
College: Claremont McKenna College - '07. Double major in Literature and Government with a minor in Leadership Studies.

2. Favorite non-law read:

4. When you are not at the Law School, how do you like to spend your time?
I'm generally running or doing something else outside.

5. Tell us something about yourself that otherwise we wouldn't know or guess:
I was a terror since the public school era. And that periodically during my senior year in college I'd crank up my speakers as loud as possible and dance around the dorm to Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone."
