Hi PfoHo! I (along with my wife Altaf) am super excited to share this experience with all of you! I am an attorney at the law firm WilmerHale as a senior litigation associate. Previously, I was a law clerk to two federal judges and an attorney at the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund in New York City, where I worked on civil rights, national security, and immigrants' rights cases. I attended Yale Law School, and, before that, I was a Marshall Scholar in England, where I received master’s degrees from Oxford University and the School of Oriental and African Studies. Somewhere in between, I also lived in Cairo, Egypt for a year, where I studied Arabic, taught journalism, and started a short-lived scuba diving business. I graduated from Stanford with a degree in International Relations and served as Editor-in-Chief of the Stanford Daily newspaper. I was born and raised in Kansas City, and love all things Kansas City (fountains, bbq, the Royals, the Chiefs, etc.). I'd love to chat with you about law school, postgraduate fellowships in the UK, public service, immigrants' rights, sports, and Kansas City. I am always up to play a game of tennis or watch pretty much any sporting event on TV, so please stop by!
