I am a civil litigator practicing in Massachusetts. My interests are constitutional law, family law, criminal procedure, commercial litigation, and legal theory.
I have presented papers on legal and cultural topics at academic conferences nationwide. I will be presenting a paper on gender performance in J. J. Abram's "Star Trek" films at this year's conference of the American Culture Association, which is in Chicago in April.
My writing focuses on how rhetorics of objectivity insulate social power structures from democratic criticism. I explore this theme in philosophy, law, literature, and American popular culture. Versions of my essays have appeared in Salon.
