Proud contributor to Daily Norseman. A lifelong Minnesota resident and sports fan. (I went to college and worked in Fargo for seven years, but that's still close enough to MN.) I love catching Twins, Wild, and Timberwolves games whenever possible, but I'm borderline maniacal when it comes to the Vikings.

I'm the proud father of a little "Vikeling" that was fittingly born hours before the 2013 NFL draft. (Her middle name is Adrian, which may or may not have been a reference to a certain Vikings running back.) I enjoy my day job as an Information Developer, but I love being able to vent about my teams and make crude attempts at humor on the side. I also play a ton of soccer, but please don't tell my fellow football fans.
