Christopher is a member of the 2026 class here at Maryland Carey School of Law, and he is actively pursuing coursework to prepare for a career in Intellectual Property and Business Law. He is also a family man who enjoys spending time outdoors with his spouse, daughter, and dog.

Christopher graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 2016 with a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics. While an undergraduate, Christopher distinguished himself by conducting independent experimental research, being named the Physics Department Graduate of the Year, and graduating Magna Cum Ladue.

In between undergraduate and law school, Christopher had a productive career as a U.S. Naval Officer. First, he spent four years teaching at the Navy's Nuclear Power School. While there, he taught undergraduate and graduate-level thermodynamics and fluid mechanics as well as supervised 108 other officers. Afterwards, Christopher spent three years as a military cryptologist for the National Security Agency where he led a sixteen-person software development team.

Christopher is interested in the intersection of law, business, and technology, and he has accepted a position as a 1L summer associate at Baker Donelson to further that goal.
