Rohan is originally from Springfield, Va. He began his mock trial career in September 2007 and competed both as a witness and attorney, but spent most of his time as an expert witness. Over three full seasons, he won ten individual awards, including an All-American Witness award at the 2010 National Championship Tournament as Dr. Jordan Lee in the case State v. Jackie Owens. Being a part of Virginia's mock trial program was the defining feature of his time in college.

Outside of mock trial, he pursued a degree in Computer Science from UVa's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and worked for IBM in Northern Virginia. He now lives in Seattle.
