I was Director of Debate at Georgetown University for over a decade and now I’m a professional poker player, writer and consultant. As an internationally recognized consultant on communication, legal and political issues, I’ve been engaged by clients as diverse as Duracell International, American Express, Speak Out America, Congressional Research Service, Japanese Public Television (NHK) and the Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile. I’ve written speeches for numerous clients, including Bill Clinton and advised several political campaigns. Currently, I serve as advisor and strategist to a Silicon Valley technology venture. As a coach I’ve won nearly every honor available in modern policy debate, including the 1992 National Debate Championship. I have a degree in law from George Mason University School of Law and Economics.


Most days that I’m not in Vegas or Atlantic City you can find me online at Partypoker or Pokerstars where Ilove playing both ring games and tournaments. I played in the 2004 and 2005 World Series of Poker, 2004 and 2005 Party Poker MIllion cruises, won the innagural Party Poker Million dollar guarenteed tournament and numerous other events. Besides poker, I love to read and write
