I’m the Senior Director for U.S. Government Relations at the ONE Campaign, an international, nonpartisan, non-profit advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
Prior to joining ONE, I worked for U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions in a variety of roles, most recently as Policy Director of the House Rule Committee and Chief of Staff of Rep. Sessions’ personal office.
I grew up in Temple, Texas, and graduated in 2007 from the University of Virginia, where he studied American Politics. I also attended Pepperdine University School of Law, where I moved all the way to Malibu just to spend three years running away from it – during law school I clerked for a judge in Uganda, worked for big international law firm in London, and clerked at the Institute for Justice in Washington, DC.
The smartest thing I’ve done is marrying my wife, Torrie, who was the Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Martha Roby prior to becoming the Chief of Staff at the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. We don’t have children, but we do have a dog, Bennett, who is named for the University of Virginia’s national championship winning basketball coach.
