Currently, I am a full-time assistant professor in the Division of Sport Management at St. John’s University in Queens, NY. In addition, I am an adjunct professor at Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law (Philadelphia, PA) and Quinnipiac University School of Law (Hamden, CT).
Outside of academia, I work as a judicial arbitrator for the State of Connecticut and as an attorney with a legal practice that focuses on sport law and sport and entertainment related issues. In my experience as a sport attorney, I have negotiated employment contracts, public appearance, endorsement and sponsorship agreements for U.S. and international coaches, professional athletes, entertainers, broadcasters, and front office personnel, while also representing world-class athletes, student-athletes, and sports agents before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the Basketball Arbitration Tribunal, and other alternative dispute resolution boards and committees.
I try to write and publish articles in the area of sport and sport law as much as possible, while also making regular guest appearances to discuss such issues on the Stan Simpson Show, WFAN, ESPN Radio, FOX Sports Radio.
Academically, I attended Springfield College, where I was a member of the football team, before
obtaining a Juris Doctorate from Loyola University School of Law in New Orleans, LA, a Master’s in
Sports Management from Columbia University, New York, NY, and an LL.M. in International and
Comparative Sports Law from Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economia (ISDE)/St. John’s University,
Madrid, Spain/ Queens, NY.
