More About

I am a homeschooler who took dual credit classes for much of my high school career. I attended school at St. Mary’s University, where I graduated early Cum Laude with a Bachelors degree in Political Science and a History Minor. During my time at St. Mary’s, I served in Student Government, as both a senator and the chairman of multiple committees. I also was an editor and writer for the St. Mary’s University Research Scholars Project, and wrote several articles that were nominated for a variety of best overall article awards and best in category awards, and seven times achieved the distinction of Outstanding Publication. I am also an Eagle Scout, which I achieved in 2017, and interned in the Washington, D.C office of the North Carolina 11th Congressional District in 2019. More recently, I have become a Carter-Vickers Research Society Member at the University of Georgia and become a Graduate Assistant to the Dean of Students. I also helped plan and host the 2022 Energy Security Conference at the University of Georgia.
