Interview

What was your first job as a journalist?

I started Sports Agent Blog (www.sportsagentblog.com) from scratch on December 31, 2005.

What's your favorite social network?

Twitter, because it allows me to specifically follow those I trust for up-to-date sports business and law related matters.

What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

I am proud of the writing I have done with regards to the concussion litigation involving the NFL and its official helmet manufacturer.
