I was a three sport varsity athlete in high school and have followed baseball and basketball for as long as I can remember. A Bay Area native, you'll find me pulling for the SF Giants, Golden State Warriors, and (to the chagrin of the Niner fans in my family) the Oakland Raiders.

In my free time I love to do anything remotely involved in sports. I'll go for a bike ride or run, throw a baseball, football, or frisbee, shoot a basketball, swim, play some water polo or tennis, and will give you a decent game of golf.

If you are a social media person (don't lie, you know you are) follow me on: Twitter, Facebook and check out my site Bases and Baskets!
