I hail from Louisiana and live in the Boston area.
I work now at Harvard Law School, where I lead the team of developers, lawyers, designers and librarians that is the Library Innovation Lab. We build software (like Perma.cc and H2O) and use technology to transform print documents into digital files (like the Caselaw Access Project and the Nuremberg Trials Project). We also have a lot of fun.
Before joining LIL, I was a practicing lawyer for 10+ years and founded a startup named Mootus, which helped lawyers collaborate on legal analysis. As a lawyer I represented lots of real clients, tried cases, argued fiercely and experienced the best and worst of the legal system up close. As a startup founder I did many things for the first time and learned there’s nothing like making things.
I have a bunch of interests and enjoy learning. Professionally, I’m committed to the idea that technology and design can improve the legal experience for all involved, and that we need lawyers to lead the way. Personally, I’m all about my family, and I love Boston sports, loud music and spicy food.
Please say hello!
