I am a civil litigator in Massachusetts. I am interested in legal theory, the history and politics of the Supreme Court, family law, and the many technicalities of commercial litigation. 


Independent Scholar

I am working on a book about hipsters -- i.e., a book about the role of irony in American media and popular culture -- which will feature critical essays about film, TV, and music. If you are interested in a pitch or prospectus, please feel free to contact me
