Professional Background

I earned my bachelor's degree from the program in which I now teach and the lessons I learned at Bonaventure have served me well in everything I've done since then. After graduation, I spent two and a half years on WPIG Radio, Olean, as a newscaster and disc jockey. From there, I worked almost 12 years with the Olean Times Herald. During most of that period, I served as Pennsylvania Bureau chief, with responsibility for a staff of three full-time reporters and as many as six part-timers.

I left the Times Herald to attend law school at the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Law. After graduation from UB, I earned a New York State law license. I still practice occasionally. I have also been a part-time tax preparer. Over time, I realized my favorite part of every one of those jobs looked a lot like teaching, which led to where I am now.

I specialize in media law and media ethics in the classes I teach for the Russell J. Jandoli School of Communication, and I'm particularly interested in the evolution of online communication and the impact of the Internet on the law.
