Purpose: A minister of justice

Mission Statement: To speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves, to stand up for what is true and right, and to judge all people fairly, so help me God (Proverbs 31:8-9)

Areas of Interest: Law, Writing (Storytelling)​, and Education

The Pen is my sword. War & Truth, my power and protection. For freedom, justice, and dignity for all.













Born and raised in Los Angeles, I'm committed to administering justice in California; specifically, in Los Angeles or Orange County. To this end, I'm studying law to become a CA-licensed civil litigator, with $0 student debt, pursuant to Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 6060 (restated under Title IV, Div. 1, Ch. 3, R. 4.26 of the Rules of The State Bar of California).  


Currently, I'm a law clerk under the Health Quality Enforcement section of the Civil Law Division in the Office of the Attorney General at the California Department of Justice. Previously, I served under the Correctional Law section, defending the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. 

Additionally, I'm a writer. My specialty is to write true stories, or stories based on a true story. See www.iloveyou-monster.comwww.lovely-girl.cowww.lonely-girl.com.


Before law school, I worked in Hollywood, the capital of storytelling, as an analyst at CBS Interactive, a subdivision of CBS Corporation (now, ViacomCBS).  Prior to Hollywood, I was a teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District and a charter school network.

For my education, I was a Clarendon Scholar at Oxford University in England. Prior to that, I earned two master's degrees; one with distinction from Oxford University and the other with high marks from the University of Southern California. For my undergraduate studies, I graduated in the top 10% with latin honors, and invitations to join Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and still more.

Every year, I travel to a different country; and so far, I visited countries throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Previously, I lived in England, Sweden, Taiwan, and South Korea. My favorite place on Earth is Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives, separated from Vanity Affairs.

In my spare time, I watch the news, read the Wall Street Journal, enjoy champagne or wine, sip tea, exercise (run), eat, read, plan, meditate, pray, and sleep. 

Currently, I live in Santa Monica with my Maltipoo rescue.
