I currently run rockiesroster.com with BlakeBomber, where we keep track of daily organizational transactions and player information.

I am a filmmaker and screenwriter, and all around student of media, storytelling and philosophy.

I enjoy writing fictional and academic material, reading textbooks, essays and criticism, cinema, television, walking in the rain, and when there's time, baseball.
