About Me

My photo
I am a consultant and general counsel to International Ride Training LLC as well as a practicing attorney in Avon, Connecticut. A particular focus of mine is the legal needs of the amusement and tourism industry. My focus on the amusement industry derives from my pre-law career as an operations manager with Cedar Fair Entertainment Company and Universal Orlando. Having started my career as a ride operator at Cedar Point in 1992, I progressed through the seasonal ranks and ultimately became the Manager of Ride Operations and Park Services at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. I also worked in Universal's operations department during the construction and development of Islands of Adventure. Today, I am an active member of the New England Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions and the International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions. I have been invited to speak at amusement industry meetings and seminars and have worked on a variety of matters relating to this industry.

Happy Birthday! Celebrate by "Liking" The Legal Roller Coaster on Facebook!

The cake is NOT a lie.  The Legal Roller Coaster really is one year old!
This weekend marks the first birthday of The Legal Roller Coaster!  In honor of the momentous occasion, The Legal Roller Coaster is expanding.  Yes, the blog will still be here, but I have recently opened a new Facebook page.  Check it out here!  The new Facebook page features:

  • Copies of documents referenced on the blog so you can see it for yourself if you just don't believe what I'm telling you;
  • More frequent updates with daily news content on the legal side of the industry; and
  • A more convenient informal way to communicate with all of you about blog content, the news of the day, or topics of interest in the industry.
