  • Associate Atorney, Cohen & Grigsby P.C.

Polytechnic Alumni Association - Secretary (Term ending August 31, 2019)

I wish to serve on the board so that I can give back to the Polytechnic community (Now NYU Tandon School of Engineering) which gave me so very much. As a business attorney, I am equipped to offer professional assistance to the board. My history of involvement with the university provides me a large network of alumni connections and a fondness for the people of the institution.

I am currently an associate attorney at Cohen & Grigsby law firm in Pittsburgh, PA. I practice in the areas of general business, international business and intellectual property law. I came to Cohen & Grigsby following law school at Penn State. Before law school, I spent two years working as a biomedical researcher at the National Disease Research Institute, where I managed an HIV/AIDS research program. I also spent a year at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center coordinating research studies.

I was an STS major with a focus in biomolecular science and a minor in Psychology. I was a varsity athlete and lettered in softball, basketball and volleyball. I was the starting pitcher on the softball team for two and a half years. At Poly I was also a resident assistant, was promoted to managing resident assistant and eventually also promoted to senior resident assistant. I formed, along with the help of two of my classmates, a Cardinal Newman Society, which is a Catholic student organization. In connection with that club I was involved in the Brooklyn Catholic community by way of a weekly cantering job at a Basilica in Bay Ridge. I worked for student athletics, participated in the emergency response planning team for the resident hall, sat on student advisory committees including on which hired the then dean of students.
