Previous Experience

I had been an adjunct at the City University of New York Queensborough Community College campus teaching Fundamentals of Business Law and Business Organization and Management since 2010. I was a solo practicing attorney for the past 16 years on Long Island New York, in the areas of real estate, estate planning and administration, family law and criminal defense primarily for indigent clients in the problem-solving diversion courts. I am a former prosecutor in the New York County District Attorney's Office and a former DEA investigator.


Born and raised in Dracut, MA


  • Doting on my rescue pup Atticus, who has congenital heart defects.

  • Watching college sports especially SEC football.

  • Following the Red Sox.

  • Cooking especially trying and adapting new (to me) recipes.

Future Goals and Aspirations

I want to finally publish at least one of my articles in progress. I want to get involved in ending BSL in Missouri while I'm here. I will visit Cuba hopefully within a year or so. My plan is to stay in higher education as long as someone will have me.

Life Outside the University

As I've only been here about 3 weeks and had to move from my original rental to another one which I did last night, I am still waiting for my "stuff" from New York. So I have no life except buying what I need and waiting for what I have so I can finally I pack and settle in.
