HeadshotThe Newman Resident brings together the worlds of law, education, and family—all set in New York City. I have a unique blend of
experiences that have combined to help me write this novel.

I was a law student at Columbia Law School for a year and then worked as a summer associate at a leading Manhattan law firm before deciding that law was not what I wanted to pursue as a career. I earned a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Foundations and have taught for a number of years. And, most important of all, I’ve been fortunate to be happily married and the father of three.

Each of these experiences in my life has contributed toThe Newman Resident, helping to make it an exciting novel that explores important issues.
