Currently, he’s a legal recruiter, working with attorneys interested in transferring from one law firm to another.

He wrote a book The Fierce Local, published in 2011, about the numerous times he and his wife spent in Ireland over a twenty year period, including some of the lessons they learned as a result of his MF diagnosis.
