I started Brew Hoop along with Alex in October 2007 after previously writing about the Bucks at Just Another Bucks Fan.

My parents first got season tickets in 1991 and you know the story from there (the Bucks' decline and my fandom have never been conclusively linked, however). Though I moved to Boston for college and have been an East Coaster ever since, I'm a religious League Pass subscriber and schedule my holiday travels around the Bucks' schedule.

Aside from following the Bucks, I'm a fan of the Brewers, Packers and FC Barcelona, and also enjoy indie rock concerts, Mountain Dew, and being a mediocre hockey player.
