I hold a B.A. in English from Furman University, M.A. in English from West Virginia University, J.D. from West Virginia University College of Law, and LL.M. in transnational law from Temple University Beasley School of Law. I am a Ph.D. candidate at Auburn University, where I received a Graduate Dean Fellowship. I edit Southern Literary Review and have been an adjunct legal associate at the Cato Institute, a Mises Emerging Scholar with the Ludwig von Mises Institute Canada, and a Humane Studies Fellow with the Institute for Humane Studies. I am an elected member of The Philadelphia Society, an associate of The Abbeville Institute, and the president of the Montgomery Lawyers’ Chapter of the Federalist Society. I have taught in university English departments, a humanities department, a law school, a Japanese private school, and a penitentiary. While in private practice in Atlanta, I represented non-profit corporations and litigated cases involving real property, contracts, collections, foreclosures, restrictive covenants, and real estate transactions.
