My long term career goal is to go academia as a college professor; however, in the nearer term (or possibly as a side gig) I'm interested in starting a small business, working as a public interest lawyer (for IJ, ACLU, or EFF), running for public office, or writing about public policy as a think tank scholar (e.g., at Cato). Eventually I want to get a J.D., Ph.D. (Economics), and M.B.A.. At some point in my life I'd like to run for President as a Libertarian. I'd also like to make a more serious run for Congress in a decade or two.
I'm a very tenacious worker when I'm interested in the subject matter and am uncannily good at brainstorming unorthodox solutions to problems. If you know of a good libertarian think tank job or business position that would take advantage of my creativity, please let me know.
I don't have much job experience... so far my main gig was working as a law clerk at the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank. While there I worked at the Center for Constitutional Studies doing legal research for Tim Lynch, Dr. Roger Pilon, Dr. Robert Levy, and Mark Moller. I also did projects for David Boaz and Dr. William Niskanen. Cato was a great environment for me to pick up some job experience while immersed in libertarian culture. Interns were given many seminars on libertarian theory and public policy. I was also able to attend numerous Cato conferences while working on staff checking people in, getting the microphone to people during Q&A sessions, etc. I'm very glad I got the opportunity to work there.
