About Me

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’).

More recently, I’ve written for 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. One of my stories won a USBWA Best Writing Award in 2014. In 2008 I graduated from the University of Michigan, where I witnessed countless classic sporting events in addition to getting a great education.

Here, you will find my original stories on a variety of sports. Instead of straight game analysis, I aim to provide insight on athletes, coaches, and other sports personalities and topics, on and off the field. I often use first person and try to incorporate humor when appropriate. I enjoy conducting interviews to get the opinions of experts, and I frequently acquire media credentials to see the players and coaches in action.

One man's writing in one place.
