I am the editor of SB Nation's IndyCar website and a five-year veteran of motorsports journalism.

Prior to motorsports, I worked in stick-and-ball sports, serving as a beat reporter for the University of South Alabama athletic program from 2007-2013, attending the Senior Bowl football game each season during that time span.

Some of my other assignments included the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament and select NFL Preseason events.

I write stories from the perspective that sports and athletics are compelling human drama.

Live. Love. Laugh.
