As Chief Communications Officer, he has several goals for the coming year. First, he wishes to promote the integration of ILSA and ultimately the propagation of international law to regions, such as Africa, where it is not well understood. Second, he wants to foster opportunities for institutional cooperation with other international and regional organizations with similar interests. Third, he hopes to encourage cooperation and integration of members around the world through the effective dissemination of information regarding the organization and international law. Lastly, he wants to create communication mechanisms where chapters can promote their own local activities or others local initiatives that may be of interest to other members around the world.

He hopes that this upcoming year will be truly a distinctively memorable one for all those involved with the International Law Weekend and those participating in the Jessup Competition around the globe. He is easily accessible and is willing to assist in any way. He promises to bestow on all members of ILSA adequate time and opportunity that they deserve.
