I graduated with an M.A. from USC in 2007. I've been a managing editor at Garnet and Black Attack since 2008, and my work at GABA has served witness to the transition from the doldrums of the early Spurrier years to the glories of more recent seasons. I've been fortunate enough to be an invited commentator on ESPN Radio and other venues. Thanks for reading!
