I love writing in general, and writing about sports in particular, since it happens to be one of my biggest passions. I try to be as objective and logical as possible in my commentary, but not without injecting some humor into it.

My favorite sports are soccer, hockey and boxing. I follow them quite religiously. My favorite clubs include Liverpool, Arsenal, Barcelona and the Washington Capitals.

After graduating from the university with a degree in communications I had a stint as an NHL columnist / reporter for the second largest sports publication in Russia, Sovietskiy Sport and the internet portal, before falling into web design and information architecture as my main source of income.

I am originally from Riga, Latvia, but moved to the United States with the rest of my family at the age of 15 and am equally fluent in both, Russian and English.

    Thanks Ryan. I think it would be worthwhile to mention in all the instructional text around the site that this feature is currently unavailable, otherwise it's misleading. I know that I was tearing my hair out trying to figure out whether I'm blind or you guys are full of it :)
