At some point, you'll have to tell me how you became a buzzfeed contributor. Nice work!

Story
Tagline
Advocate for the Modern Age.
Introduction
I am an associate at a Wall Street litigation boutique.  My practice concentrates in financial services litigation.  I love politics and architecture, writing and design.  I like Diet Coke and Google Reader.

My writing has appeared in The New Yorker, BuzzFeed, Bloomberg Law Reports, and the treatise Commercial Litigation in New York State Courts.

I was born and raised in Norwich, Connecticut.  I'm a graduate of Norwich Free Academy.  I studied politics and philosophy at NYU.  I received my master's degree with distinction in international relations from King's College London, and my law degree from Emory University School of Law.

I spent the summer of 2001 traveling throughout Pakistan on a human rights research fellowship.  I was the founding editor-in-chief of the NYU Journal of Human Rights.  I worked for 9/11 Commissioner John Lehman, and worked with Lt. Cmdr. Charles Swift on the military commission trial of Guantanamo Bay Detainee Salim Hamdan.  I've worked for President Clinton, Senator Chris Dodd, then-Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, and Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Jon Stewart once made fun of me on the Daily Show; I was almost a guest on Montel Williams.

I was the editor of the late michaelphillips.blogspot.com, and now I write at MTPII, the world's finest critical tumblr.
