Current Vocation: Assistant District Attorney, Athens-Clarke County
This is now my eleventh year in Athens. I came to town for undergrad in 2008 and became immediately enamored with this town and, more specifically, its artistic riches. I perform regularly with the Town & Gown community theater on Grady Avenue and try to get over to Cine to see what's on offer as regularly as I can. By day, I am an assistant district attorney for Clarke County.
