Most of my life has been spent in the world of sports as a student athlete, a coach, an administrator, and as a consultant. I competed on the high school and college level in baseball, basketball, and squash, and officiated in baseball and basketball, and have been an administrator on the high school and college level. In recent years I have served as a consultant to Presidents and College Athletics Directors on sports related issues. I served for29 years as an administrator in college athletics, 19 at St. John's University, and 10 as the Dean of Physical Education and Athletics at Stony Brook. I founded two Summer Baseball camps - one at St. John's University and one at Lutheran High School in Brookville, Long Island. Upon leaving athletics I returned to the classroom as a Professor in the College of Business where I currently reside. I also serve as a consultant for Intercollegiate Athletic Consulting, a company that reviews all aspects of a university's athletics program.

Research: My current interest is the educational challenges faced by Korean students in American universities.

Teaching: I have taught a variety of Physical Education courses in the past including Conditioning and racquet sports. In the College of Business I have taught Introduction to Business, International Business, Ethics, and Sports Management
