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 worked as our 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 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. I still write a little bit as a freelance sports writer for several dailies and weeklies south of Boston.
From nine years, I was the high school sports coordinator, during which time 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 Fantasy Premier League to my leagues.
Any of England's back three, Wood and Billy more so, are a good back for points, I'd say!
Cheers again, Rick. (Hope you can find some way to see the match. Should be cracking)
Hibbard definitely not a bad choice, sir. Joe Launchbury might be worth a look in the locks, too ;) Cheers for the edit, Rick.
Thanks for the edits on my Tottenham/Hull piece yesterday, Rick.
Cheers for your edits today Rick, much appreciated.
hey Rick, thanks for the edit. Appreciate the feedback, especially on the -ward words clarification. I actually looked for the Brendan Smith tag and the only one I could find was for Northwestern Football... not sure what the deal was there.
Ha! Just checked out Alfred Morris' car! Brillaint!
Thanks Rick, top work!
Thanks for the edit Rick!
Hey Rick, thanks so much for the edits. Nice to know there are other Asian-Boston fans out there!
Perfect. Thanks again, Rick.
