Undergraduate School: University of Southern Maine

Legal Interests: I have interests in patent law, natural resources law, and trust and estates. I also have a passion for appellate work, and enjoy citations.

 I have written two case notes, both of which were published with Maine Law Review. My first Note looked at whether biotechnological inventions should be excluded as unpatentable subject matter under the Supreme Court’s ruling in Mayo v. Prometheus. The second note argues that, currently, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s administrative law judges are inferior officers who have not been properly appointed in accordance with the U.S. Constitution.

 I am a Case Note and Comment Editor, providing guidance and oversight for MLR staff members in their writing of articles.
