I began working as a freelance copy editor for Bleacher Report in September 2010, and I write a bit for the site, though I wish I had more time to submit more articles. Since March 2012, I have acquired the title of Copy Editing Feedback Editor, which means I am responsible for reviewing the performance of the company's 50-plus scheduled and on-call copy editors.
I'm a 1992 journalism/political science graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst who has lived in the Bay State virtually all my life. I was lucky to spend 17 years full time in daily newspaper sports journalism before voluntarily taking a buyout to spend more time with my family and explore new options in the field.
Currently I am a freelance sports writer for several GateHouse Media New England dailies and weeklies south of Boston.
From 2000 to 2009, I was the high school sports coordinator at The Patriot Ledger, where my staff and I won several awards. I have extensive experience in copy editing and page design that includes being responsible for producing the daily sports section at several newspapers.
Through co-op and intern programs, I have served as a mentor to many college students, many of whom are working professionally in the media. I am a member of the Asian American Journalists Association's New England chapter.
I am a former fantasy sports junkie who has won leagues in hockey, baseball and football numerous times. I've mellowed and now play more casually, though I've added basketball to my leagues.
Thanks Rick for the edits on my Tottenham/Fulham piece on Sunday.
Thanks for the edits, Rick, and for finding that source article. I had a slight techinical problem when I copied in some paras onto the BR site, which resulted in some lines appearing over other ones. Not sure why that happened. Anyway, it looked bad so I thought the best option was to drop the affected lines down, but that meant blank gaps appeared - again not good. All a bit mysterious, but thanks for sorting it out!
Thank you for the edits and tips, Rick! Excellent work.
Thanks for the edits, Rick. Appreciate the advice and work.
Thanks for the edit! That is awesome info on Jimmy Quinlan, thanks for the heads up!
All good Rick. Thanks for following those up. Appreciate it.
Thanks so much, Rick.
Thanks for the detailed feedback Rick! Have fun at the game this weekend!
