Who I am
My name is Samantha and I am a jewelry designer, blogger, and streamer. I am the 2020-2021 Legal Fellow for the Copyright Alliance. Select internship and clerkship experience includes the International Game Developers Association Foundation, the Entertainment Software Association, the National Music Publishers’ Association, the United States Copyright Office, and the Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property.
My work in copyright includes research for a Supreme Court amicus brief, editing the forthcoming Oxford University Press Music Law Handbook, providing research and editing support for Senate hearing testimony and various law journal articles, and policy and client work through the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School's Arts & Entertainment Advocacy Clinic. I authored a law review article which received Second Prize in the 2020 Berkeley Technology Law Journal Student Writing Competition and was recently published by the North Carolina Journal of Law & Technology.
My business experience includes founding a sorority jewelry company and providing support to small business and creator clients through the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School's Innovation Law Clinic.
I earned my J.D. from the George Mason University School of Law and my B.A. in economics and B.A. in biology from Emory University.
Why I do this
I started this blog to share tips and suggestions for entrepreneurs, small business owners, entertainers, and creators. As a jewelry designer, blogger, and streamer, I understand the importance of creating protective work and turning passions into careers. I hope that the topics covered in the blog are helpful for anyone looking to begin their own venture.
