I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, where I quickly found and developed a passion for the St. Louis Cardinals. My family moved to Saginaw, Michigan, prior to my eighth-grade year, and I have resided in Michigan ever since.

I graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan, in May 2014 with a degree in communication and English.

I worked as sports editor of my college's student-run newspaper and served as co-editor-in-chief for the 2013-14 school year. I ran cross-country and track at Hope, an NCAA Division III school. I continue to run post-collegiately.

While I am a runner myself, I am also a huge fan of the sport—cross-country, track and field, road racing, ultrarunning—and follow running on a daily basis.

My dad grew up in Ohio, and he's a diehard Cleveland sports fan. Since I've been watching, listening and reading about Cleveland sports all my life, I support the Browns, Cavs and Indians. Also, St. Louis' lack of an NBA team makes it natural for me to cheer for the Cavs. However, Cardinals and Rams above Indians and Browns—undoubtedly.

I like to instill a positive atmosphere wherever I go. I like to be joyful, and sports bring me loads of joy.

    James, thanks for your help with my fantasy pitcher picks article today. Sorry about the tweet thing, that's more work than you should have to do. You're the first editor to tell me about the need for introductory attributions, I've been omitting them for a while, so thanks! Do you know if there's a link somewhere to it in B/R's style guide or attribution guidelines? Thanks!
