I joined the SB Nation family with Waking the Red when the blog was less than a year old. We cover Toronto FC and the Canadian National teams which have allowed us to create one of the top MLS focused blogs on the network.

Along with Waking the Red my work have been featured on and Soccer Wire. Where I have written about Toronto FC and soccer at various levels across the provence of Ontario.

The dream is to keep growing Waking the Red into an even better community than it already has. Any small thing I can do to help continue to growth of soccer in this country.
