    Attorney with Immigration Expertise

    United States - Last active: 07/15/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    Since I was young, I have found the dystopias of the English canon both terrifying and fascinating. Orwell, Bradbury, Kafka, and Vonnegut: each of their prophetic visions transform over time as if to demand that the reader constantly reexamine their society for the warning signs. Fifteen years after my first encounter with 1984 I continue to examine our society as a policy analyst and writer. For me, it is Huxley’s imagining of a future when the “truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance” that carries the most import. Advances in technology have inundated us with a deluge of information and engagement options. Drawing attention to the important causes of the hour is more difficult than ever before. Aptly, Huxley’s diagnosis of our society also supplied a cure: “Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.” This is where I come in: I am a master of words. I have honed the analytical abilities of a lawyer and the communication skills of a writer. I am an established policy analyst with experience in the fields of immigration, environmental justice,human rights, and civil liberties. I am an articulate and adept writer, with the ability to craft compelling arguments on tight deadlines. The culmination of these skills makes me a powerful advocate who can compose forceful and influential campaigns that change hearts and minds. I have spent my life learning to deconstruct words, to discerningly excise their meaning, and then to sculpt them into poignant messages that stand out and inspire change.
