He earned his B.A. in political science from Manhattanville College, and his M.A. in Latin American studies from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, where he was a Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) Scholar. His previous work experience includes a stint as a paralegal for a small immigration law firm, three Congressional internships, and Latino outreach efforts for various political campaigns in his hometown of Stamford, Connecticut.
