I am a Senior Associate in the Dallas office of Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP (BAL) where I practice U.S. and global corporate immigration, serving some of the world's best known companies, and chair the firm’s Legal Research and Analysis Committee.
I have nearly a decade of experience in U.S. and global immigration law. I started my career as an Attorney-Advisor at a U.S. Government immigration agency in Washington, DC, though the Attorney General’s Honors Program, and then entered the private sector, working for the world's top corporate immigration law firms.
In 2012, I created a new Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) for the Asia Pacific region, the Bangkok District Chapter, and served as its inaugural Chair. I am also the past Co-Chair of the American Bar Association Immigration and Naturalization Committee, past member of the AILA National Business Immigration Committee, and currently serve on the Steering Committee of AILA’s Global Migration Section.
I have authored over 20 articles on immigration law, spoken at nearly 30 immigration-related events, contributed to major immigration studies, and drafted comments to major USCIS policy memoranda.
I am dual-qualified in both the United States and Australia.
