I am the former site administrator for And The Valley Shook. I am a lifelong LSU athletics fan, currently living in the State of Alabama and practicing law here.

I am married to a woman who is a Bama football fan and Kentucky basketball fan. I have one child, and she is doomed to a lifetime of confusion regarding her fan loyalty.

When I'm not spending time with my family or following sports, I like to read everything from classic literature to science fiction, from science-fact to history.

I am something of a nerd. It doesn't bother me to admit it, and I won't be offended if you think so as well.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Tampa Bay Rays
  • NBA New Orleans Pelicans
  • NFL New Orleans Saints
  • NCAAF LSU Tigers
  • NCAAB LSU Tigers
  • Soccer East Ascension High School
