I'm a freelance journalist who co-founded in August 2008 because writing about WSU athletics is my passion.

Past employers include The (Tacoma, Wash.) News Tribune and, and my work has appeared at Basketball Prospectus, Lindy's college sports annuals and Horizon Air Magazine. I own the currently-on-hiatus Cougar Sports Weekly, an email newsletter that real people actually paid real money to receive.

Helping teenagers master the English language constitutes the bulk of my day job.
