Before Fujifilm USA, Baer worked in the world of sports, where he held positions within the New York Cosmos soccer team and the NFL's World League of American Football, later named NFL Europe.

Baer holds a Masters in Sports Management from Adelphi University and a dual Bachelor of Science in Economics and Human Kinetics from Rutgers University.
