I'm a recent graduate of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash. who enjoys watching, following, analyzing and writing about sports. I worked for a college paper (three years as a sports staff writer, one year as a copy editor, one year as a sports editor, one year as a sports columnist), worked for a professional paper (one year as a call taker for the sports section of the Spokesman-Review), and now just in between things. I'm all about the Bay Area sports teams (sans the A's and Raiders) and like to voice my opinion when I get the chance.

I like to write and read on a variety of subjects. In college, I wrote primarily on the Zags while working as a staff writer and sports editor and had a weekly column where I had free range to write on whatever was on my mind. As far as writing goes, I like to vary it up. There are articles where I like to be analytical and partisan, but there are a lot of articles where I try to bring something different to the table.

For the most part, I enjoy writing in general, sports writing especially. However, sports writing is not all I am about. I like to read Hemingway, Kerouac and Easton Ellis just as much as I like to read Simmons on ESPN. For Bleacher Report, I will mostly focus on the Giants, since they are the favorite sports team of my favorite sport. That being said, I do have opinions on the 49ers, Warriors, Zags and Sharks, but for the most part, a majority (80-90 percent) of things I write and comment about will be on the Giants.

For more on the Giants or just more writing in general you can check out my own blog dedicated to baseball and the Giants at

    Clearly you've had dealings with that dude before, but well handled and appreciate the voice.

    First time our paths have crossed as far as I can tell, probably not the last.
