I was born and raised on Long Island, New York and then went to college and law school in Philadelphia which left an indelible mark on my sports fandom as I spent far too much of my free time and money on the Broad Street line going to the sports complex to catch Phillies and Flyers games.

I moved to Phoenix in 2005 and my love of hockey led me to quickly adopt the Coyotes as my local sports addiction. A season ticket holder for the past four years, I got to know Travis Hair over at Five For Howling and currently contribute there as the Associate Editor. SB Nation and the Coyotes rabid Twitter fanbase have introduced me to some of my closest friends in the valley and I hope to bring that same sense of camaraderie to everyone that makes their way out to Glendale to catch some Coyotes hockey - or even those that just tune in to games and want to get a better understanding of exactly what is going on.
