I got my start writing about baseball for an audience with the founding of Beyond the Box Score back in 2005, and have spent the subsequent years writing about the game for Baseball Prospectus, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated among others. I was also the video game editor at Blast Magazine for a few years; sadly, my experience seeing cosplay at gaming conventions won't help me as much here at SB Nation as we all wish it would. I'm currently co-managing SB Nation's Red Sox blog Over the Monster and writing for Sports on Earth, in addition to writing and editing for SB Nation's MLB hub.
