I'm a 2012 graduate of the Russell J. Jandoli School of Journalism and Mass Communication at St. Bonaventure University. In addition to contributing to/editing for this fine website, I was a former sports editor associate editor at The Bona Venture, the campus newspaper. I had the privilege of covering the women's basketball team's rise into the public eye, covering both the 2010 and 2011 Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Tournaments and Women's NIT.

I am a former NASCAR Featured Columnist for B/R and an alum of both the Writing and Copy Editing Internships. A lot has changed at B/R over the past few months, however, and I'm looking to start fresh.

I also write for Kicker, a news website geared towards the 14-to-24 demographic, and VolunTEEN Nation -- a website that spotlights volunteer opportunities for teenagers (imagine that!). Occasionally, I write on my personal blog: papaserge.wordpress.com

I currently reside in Jamestown, N.Y.-- yes, I'm from the home of Lucille Ball and current NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. As far as sports interests go, you can obviously find that on the "Short List" below. However, away from feeding my sports obsession, I am a huge classic rock fan and love comedy films.

    Damn, thanks for spotting typos in my piece! I tend to not even check for them as it just isn't something I regularly do. Glad someone caught my slip-up. Maybe I'm tired or something? I don't know, but grateful anyway.

    Thanks for the feedback Ryan.

    One question, how the heck do I add a link to a different article into my article like everyone else. That's one thing I've never been able to figure out.
