Kirk Bowersox
I was born and raised just outside of Cleveland, OH. Currently, I live in Arlington five blocks from campus. I have been married for just over four years and have two pit bull mixes, Louie and Lady.

I graduated from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in 2012 with a degree in Business Administration, specializing in Supply Chain Management. While at Bowling Green I had internships with both Marathon Petroleum Co. and John Deere. I was also a member of the Bowling Green rugby club.

Upon graduation, I moved to and spent the next four years in Baton Rouge, LA with Marathon filling roles in logistics, warehousing, buying and contracting. During this time, I met my Wife and she graduated from LSU Law. We then moved to the DC area in 2016 and I became a contracts specialist at Fannie Mae. In 2017, I began my current role as a contracting officer for the U.S. Government.

Henry Chen
I grew up in Newark, Delaware, and have been gradually making my way south ever since. I am a 2014 graduate of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where I majored in political science. I also hold an M.A. in international economics from Johns Hopkins SAIS in Washington D.C. Ever since graduating, I have worked in the energy regulatory field for both regulated entities as well as the federal government (I am currently a program analyst at the Department of the Interior’s offshore oil regulator). Concurrently, I am also a reserve intelligence officer in the Army National Guard. In my spare time, I enjoy reading historical nonfiction and drinking scotch.

Lillia Damalouji
I am from Southern Maryland and have just graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park. While at Maryland, I studied Government and Politics as well as Sustainability Studies. I am currently working for the Department of Defense and am one of the 1E Representatives on the Student Bar Association.

During my time at the University of Maryland, I had the opportunity to serve on the University Senate and have interned in both state and federal government. I am excited to learn more about National Security Law and hope to utilize the experiences I have gained so far to apply to a career as an attorney.

Mike Smiley
I am a project manager for the Department of Defense, working and living in Alexandria, VA. I received a BS in Marketing from DePaul University in Chicago, IL and a MBA from Towson University in Towson, MD. I’m married and have two young sons (five and three).
