He has published commentary in various publications over the last decade including the Huffington Post, The Grio, and the Miami Herald as well as being a regular contributor to Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. He has hosted a television show that was nominated for a Regional Emmy Award and has spoken across the country on a variety of topics related to public policy, education, and social justice.

His book, “Brighter Ways Forward: Reflections on Sports, Tech, and Socioeconomic Mobility” features an in-depth exploration of the role of sports and tech and how they can be leveraged for socioeconomic mobility.
