Shahouli­an, 42, says his ar­rival at the com­mit­tee about sev­en years ago was a res­ult of “a U-turn or something” from an earli­er ca­reer fo­cus. The Miami­an at­ten­ded film school and worked in the film in­dustry for sev­er­al years be­fore earn­ing a gradu­ate de­gree in cre­at­ive writ­ing at the Uni­versity of South­ern Cali­for­nia. Then came law school and a job at Hol­land & Knight, where his prac­tice in­cluded im­mig­ra­tion cases. He joined the com­mit­tee staff in 2007 and says his work on im­mig­ra­tion re­form is “the cause of my life. Im­mig­ra­tion re­form is not just a job for me.”
