I began working as a freelance copy editor for Bleacher Report in September 2010, and I used to write a bit for the site before time became an issue. 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.
For 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.
Thanks for the edits on my Tottenham/Villa article yesterday, Rick.
Thanks Rick, good to know!
Thanks for the edits, Rick. Much appreciated.
Thanks for the edits and kind words, Rick. Did I really spell out a number in the headline? Jeez. I'll keep the "goalmouth" tidbit in mind as well.
Haha :D thanks for the edit Rick! As a self-proclaimed expert on the Belgian NT, I would argue plays as a free winger in Chelsea's 4-2-3-1 and as such could be classified as both a forward and a midfielder, but I'm not going to argue with a Chelsea fan, you guys see more of him than I do! Take care!
Thanks for the edits on my Benfica/Tottenham article yesterday, Rick.
Thanks very much for the edits on my Tottenham/Benfica piece last night, Rick.
Thanks for clarifying about the block quotes, Rick.
Thanks for the edits on my Tottenham preview today, Rick. Never quite sure with those quotes as I've been advised in different ways. I'll look to make sure the longer ones are in a block from now on.
