Co-creator of RaptorsHQ.com.

Originally hailing from PEI and a Cavs fan, a move to Toronto after University gave me the push I needed to leave the glory days of Mark Price and Brad Daugherty behind. I've been a Raptors fanatic ever since with Morris Peterson being my favourite all-time Dino.

Besides blogging and writing about the Raptors for over seven years, I'm also a college ball fanatic (Go Duke) and a music aficionado, especially hip-hop and jazz. Outside of the site (what, you thought this paid??) I work in online marketing and analytics, and occasionally find time to do some DJing.
