Joined NMR in: 

August 2020

John is entering his second year at California Western School of Law and is the current President of school’s local American Constitution Society chapter. John has a passion for working with creative professionals, entrepreneurs, and with the technology industry at large. While exploring other fields, John is most strongly exploring a career in data privacy. Most of his interest in these fields came from his father’s passion for technology and creativity within his entrepreneurial ventures. 

Prior to starting his law school journey, John worked as a technician for Apple, Inc. for about 5 years where he explored his passion for technology and developed a thorough interest for data privacy and related legal issues stemming from modern consumer electronics and services. In an effort to help empower underserved communities, John has also worked for a northern San Diego County non-profit organization for the past 7 years helping abused women navigate the legal system. 

John’s enjoyed spending time with his adorable lab-dachshund mix, and binging shows and movies on Netflix and Hulu in his free time. He also enjoys hiking and flying his drone in new areas in an effort to capture perfect landscape photos.
