“Give me a jury and turn me loose with the entire lexicon of our language and I will put together sentences that move people to do the right thing. I will move people to take courage and be brave. Words! Way more important than chemistry or physics or economics. The power of words can change the world.”

“My passion for the last twenty-five years has been to fight for the civil rights of LGBT Americans as an LGBT activist. In this role, I have written op eds for media outlets, managed media relations for direct action social justice organizations, and served as spokesperson for LGBT causes. All of my activism is based on what I learned as an English major: how to make a compelling case, anticipate objections, and craft compelling rebuttals.”
