I'm an entrepreneur, law student and a thinker. This is where I combine all those wonderful phenomena into a creative outlet for myself.
The 15...year plan?
I went on a date recently, and one of the topics of conversation were first date horror stories. Don't worry, this date wasn't a horror story and that isn't why we were talking about it. But, nevertheless, we were talking about it.
3 Tips for acing your law exams

King Henry III and Simon De Montfort: The accidental forefathers of Parliament in English Legal Systems
Imagine this: Your name is King Henry III. The year is 1216 and, at the age of nine years old, you have just been coronated as King of England.

The Power of You
In early 2017, my life was pretty simple, straightforward, and—as strange as it is for me to think about in hindsight—completely bland. I was 20 years old and a full-time law student. I worked my part-time retail job on the weekends, and I spent time with my girlfriend on my days off. I saw friends from time-to-time, but for the most part, I kept to myself and was focused on my grades and my career prospects.
