Sports have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I have enjoyed writing for almost as long. Having an opportunity to write about sports, and in particular, hockey, the NHL and the Olympic Games is a true pleasure. I participate in numerous sports and also enjoy coaching several youth sports.

My intellectual interests are eclectic. I hold a PhD from Trent University in Peterborough, ON. I am also a part-time faculty member and Research Associate at Trent.

    Thanks for becoming a fan, James! How are you enjoying writing for B/R? Your writing is terrific, I especially enjoyed your recent piece about the Oilers chances of making the playoffs. The NHL community on B/R is one of the most lively and knowledgeable, so I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Do you plan on covering any other sports?

    Thanks again, James, and if you have any questions about the site or ideas for how to improve B/R please don't hesitate to contact me.
