Contributor

Bryan began blogging in 2009 for SB Nation’s Colorado Rockies blog Purple Row, specializing in retro pieces, opposing team previews, and hastily thrown together game recaps – all of which are heavily laced with jokes that only he would understand. During his time at Purple Row, Bryan has had the pleasure of being a guest on several radio shows – in Denver and elsewhere. One of the highlights of his young career was the opportunity to interview baseball hall of famer Tony Gwynn. Bryan is an avid baseball fan, has a soft spot for heavy music, and is an aspiring beer connoisseur. He is currently attending the University of Utah in pursuit of a journalism degree, and lives in Sandy, UT with his wife, two Boston Terriers, and soon-to-be baby boy.
