Assistant Professor, Sport Management
My research centers on the relationship between sports fandom and physical health. In other words, I research how your loyal Patriots fandom will impact your lifespan and healthspan.
I teach courses in sport management and marketing, focusing on real-world applications that will help my students construct meaningful careers.
I have worked in sports media as an editor (ESPN), reporter (The Buffalo News), freelance writer (New York Times, USA Today), and TV producer (WGRZ-TV). I stay involved in this world as a contributing writer for Complex. I also served as an account manager at SMT (SportsMEDIA Technologies), where I worked on the broadcast production of sporting events including the Stanley Cup Finals and NCAA Tournament. Finally, I began my career in coaching basketball, serving as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Amherst College and as a high school head coach in my hometown of Buffalo, N.Y.
