Data and Policy Analyst

Eric is a data and policy analyst covering regulated US gambling, including sports betting and DFS. His work is cited extensively in major media outlets including the Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Eric began writing for Legal Sports Report in 2017, just prior to the repeal of PASPA. Most of his early reporting followed the legislative beat as states outside of Nevada began to legalize and regulate sports betting. He has tracked hundreds of bills and across dozens of jurisdictions, and he was on site for the first launches in Delaware and New Jersey in 2018.

In his role for LSR’s former sister site, Online Poker Report, Eric was also inside the federal courthouse in New Hampshire as the US Department of Justice defended its reinterpretation of the Wire Act in 2019. He comes from a poker background, formerly on staff at PokerNews and the World Poker Tour.
