I've been blogging for SB Nation since January 2009 when I took over Pickaxe and Roll (now Denver Stiffs) to write about the Denver Nuggets and I've been credentialed with the team since 2012.

I graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver with a degree in Journalism and History. While in school I interned at KDVR Fox 31 in the Sports Department. Growing up in Colorado it was important to learn the history of both the Broncos and the Nuggets to understand the gloom and the glory of the franchises. I was also able to witness, with a keen eye, the birth of both the Colorado Rockies and Avalanche as I grew up - living in history if you will.

Forever the historian I continue to study the past of my favorite sports as it helps fill in a lot of blanks. Through SB Nation I'm enjoying re-igniting my passion for writing and to top it off I get to talk Nuggets whenever I want.

You can catch me in audio form on ColoradoSportsGuys.com where Ross Martin, Jeff Morton, and I talk all things Colorado pro/college sports and some pop-culture too.
