I am a legal writer and Senior Marketing Counsel at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C. in New York City, where I develop strategy for the firm's blog and other content. I also serve as a lead writer for articles and blog posts for publication on the firm’s website both individually and in consultation with firm attorneys.
Before joining Ogletree Deakins, I was a Senior Reporter for Law360, a leading online legal news publication owned by LexisNexis. At Law360, I spearheaded the launch of the “Sports & Betting” newswire and covered legal issues in the sports industry and emerging legal sports betting and gaming industry. I also made several media appearances as an expert discussing sports law issues, including CBS News online and the Law360 Pro Say podcast.
I proudly serve on the Board of Directors for JURIST Legal News & Research, a 501(c)(3) independent non-profit headquartered at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law with a mission to provide law students around the world an opportunity to document and defend the rule of law.
I earned a Juris Doctor from the Pitt Law with a certificate in civil litigation and served as Chief of Staff at JURIST. I studied newspaper journalism, history and political science at Syracuse University and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
A native of Western Pennsylvania, I enjoy attending sports events, watching films and eating great food. I currently reside in the East Harlem neighborhood, a.k.a. "El Barrio," of New York City.
Currently, I am not practicing law or taking clients, though I am licensed to practice in both New York and Pennsylvania. You can contact me here.
