About

The first wrestling match I saw live was between “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig and Bret “The Hitman” Hart for the Intercontinental Championship. It was in Madison Square Garden at WWF SummerSlam '91. I was only eight years old and a fan less than six months. I can’t remember what first got me into wrestling, or even seeing the previous match (a six-man tag featuring one of my soon-to-be favorites, “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith).

The match would become a classic, but this was before I knew anything about work-rate, psychology, and storytelling. I simply watched in amazement. Nearly 20 years later, and I still watch wrestling in amazement.

Here's a little bit about myself:

I'm 27 years old and live in New York City. I'm a freelance writer and a nearly lifelong fan of professional wrestling. It was only until recently that I decided to combine the two.

I've been writing since I was 12 years old, at first for recreation and then later, professionally.

Here are some of my credentials:

Earlier this month, The Fiscal Times published my article, "Class of 2010: Will These College Grads Ever Find Jobs?"

In August 2009, I was quoted in The Associated Press, in an article that was picked up by over 120 publications.

In June 2009, I was featured in a segment on NY1, talking about how much I love writing.

In May 2009, I graduated from Hunter College, City University of New York, where I majored in English Language Arts and minored in Film. I wrote movie reviews, book reviews, and opinion pieces for its newspaper, The Hunter Envoy.

In August 2008, I completed my first feature-length screenplay, a comedy-drama about wrestling based on some of my personal experiences.

In July 2007, Newsday published my opinion piece; a defense of the wrestling business after the murder/suicide of wrestler Chris Benoit and his family.

Before that, I was an Editorial Assistant at Discover, the popular science magazine, and Gear, the former men’s magazine.

And for three years, I was a film critic for CinemaBlend.com, which published over fifty of my movie reviews, box office reports, and my interviews with actors such as Joe Pantoliano and Michael Ealy.
