I was eight years old when my family got its first computer, which instantly gave my writing a sense of legitimacy. I awoke at hours I now find ungodly to write recaps of entire New York Yankees seasons (yes, the Yankees—their seasons were typically more interesting than my beloved Mets’).
Now I am a full-time sportswriter for MLive Media Group, which operates local newspapers and websites all over Michigan, including The Ann Arbor News. I am the beat writer for the University of Michigan men’s basketball team, but I cover football — and, occasionally, other sports and topics — as well.
Before that I was a full-time freelancer with bylines in The Wall Street Journal, ESPN the Magazine, Newsday, Sports on Earth, CBS Local, The Journal News, amNewYork, Basketball Times, FoxSports.com, and ICGaels.com, among others. I’ve won two USBWA Best Writing Awards.
This website, at one time, featured some original stories as well as all of my freelance work. I will still post links to my stories here on a somewhat regular basis, but your best bet to find my work is on my personal MLive page or to follow me on Twitter.
