Law School Graduate with Digital Marketing and SEO Experience
Last active: 06/01/2014
I am a recent graduate of the University of La Verne College of Law where I was graduated on the Dean's List and served as both a Staff Editor for Law Review and President for the Sports and Entertainment Law Society. I am extremely interested in pursuing a career in the entertainment law field. I was recently published in my school’s current law review volume for my comment on a contemporary entertainment law/copyright law topic--a copy of which I will be happy to provide as a writing sample upon request.
From the age of two, I have been involved in the entertainment industry and still maintain my SAG membership. While working at the Law Offices of Allen, Mullings & Allen, I became rather familiar with the on-goings of legal practice. I was also given the opportunity to research issues pertaining to civil litigation and insurance litigation. My research skills were finely tuned during my judicial externship with the San Bernardino Superior Court. I have also developed oral advocacy skills through my time at the Mayor's Office of San Francisco, where I was given the opportunity to represent constituents by voicing their concerns to the mayoral staff.
Moreover, my internship under the Executive Vice President of Brand Partnerships and Business Development at Universal Music Latin Entertainment has bestowed upon me an intimate knowledge of entertainment contracting and business negotiation. By working closely with the Brand Partnership Department, this internship fostered an intimate understanding of branding and marketing by requiring copywriting and creation of artist decks. Most recently, I completed a paid internship with Universal Motion Picture Group’s Music Business Affairs office, where I worked closely with the Executive Vice President to determine the contractual rights and obligations of parties to soundtrack and score synchronization and master use license arrangements. Currently, I am serving as a freelance Online Marketing Coordinator for J.G. Haddy Sales Company, where I am developing strategies to improve SEO for the parent company and its three subsidiaries. I feel that my combination of experience in the legal realm coupled with my lifelong history with the entertainment business makes me an ideal candidate
