I've been writing about the Twins since March of 2005 when TwinsGeek set up the original Twins post-centered fan community, Twins Territory. Since November of 2005, TwinkieTown's inception, I've been the administrator and chief contributor for this community.

I have a great passion for baseball and for the Twins specifically, and this site is the perfect outlet for me. With all the members involved and all the different perspectives it's impossible to not learn something new on a regular basis, and I love the constant flow of input and ideas.

This community has grown by leaps and bounds since it's debut, and I encourage anyone and everyone who stops by to participate in the discussion. Thanks for reading, and enjoy TwinkieTown 3.0!
