I'm a full-time writer for the Fort Bend Herald and The Crawfish Boxes.

I could talk about baseball all day long (and often do). I also really enjoy following and writing about the minor leagues, especially using advanced metrics to better understand how prospects are performing.

Questions? Just drop me an email. Complaints? That's why we have more than one writer on the site...
