After growing up in southern California just north of Los Angeles, I attended college at the University of Oregon.
Since graduating, I became the editor of a newspaper outside of Portland before moving on to a job outside of journalism.
In my free time, I write and blog about professional sports for B/R and DodgersNation.com.

I am a featured illustrator/designer for major sports brands like ESPN, CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated. I also work directly with professional teams, I am the exclusive digital illustrator for the New York Knicks and New York Rangers, I have worked on a variety of digital and merchandise products for The New York Red Bulls and my artwork has been on the cover of the Phoenix Suns Free Throw Magazine. In addition I work with professional athletes organizations like J.R. Smith's Reach Anonymous and sports agents like Hazan Sports Management.
My work has been written about in the Boston Globe, Washington Post, Fox Sports and in many other sports media outlets. Recently I worked on editorial illustrations for Fansided and Cover 32. I would love to have an opportunity to create some designs and illustrations for Bleacher Report as well if you are interested. You can see my work on my website elliotgerard.com or my Instagram account @elliotgerard.
Thanks for you time and consideration and I look forward to talking further with you.
All the best,
Love your coverage of the Raiders. Keep up the good work!
