Nathaniel S. Hamilton

Managing Editor DC

Nathaniel Hamilton is the Managing Editor at Pacific Legal Foundation, and he hates writing bios, especially his own.

Nathaniel tells our clients’ stories and educates, entertains, and expands PLF’s audience.

Nathaniel also helps develop the strategy for PLF’s website content and quarterly magazine Sword&Scales. He is constantly looking for risky and innovative ways to fight for PLF’s liberty-expanding mission with written content. PLF’s clients are incredibly brave people and our victories are important: It’s Nathaniel’s job to tell those stories perfectly.

Before PLF, Nathaniel worked at the Illinois Policy Institute and Project Six in Chicago. He studied economics and English at Butler University in Indianapolis, so he stereotypically loves college basketball and IndyCar racing. He also loves reading and writing (obviously) and will gladly recite any Bob Newhart or Smothers Brothers routines.
