He has been quoted in several prominent national and international publications including the USA Today, Fox News, the Washington Post, and the Washington Times.

He has previously served as a summer associate at Cooper & Kirk, PLLC and at the Office of the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division in the Department of Justice. Before then he interned for the Committee on House Administration, the Meese Legal Center at the Heritage Foundation, and “Hannity” on Fox News Channel.
