Lifelong baseball fan...my teams are the Diamondbacks, Angels (hence my love for Joe Saunders) and Rockies. I hail from Colorado originally (though born in SoCal) and have followed the Rockies and also the Diamondbacks since their inceptions and the Angels since childhood. I love a great game of baseball and grew up in a family of baseball fans.

Favourite players past & present include Bronson Arroyo, Joe Saunders, Augie Ojeda, Ryan Roberts, Geoff Blum, Craig Breslow, Henry Blanco, Ian Kennedy, Wade Miley, Chris Johnson, Aaron Hill, John McDonald, A.J. Pollock, Adam Eaton, Jeff Salazar, Ryan Spilborghs, Barry Enright, Kelly Johnson, Clay Zavada, Miguel Montero, Chris Young, Jon Garland, Orlando Hudson, David Eckstein, Todd Helton, Ubaldo Jimenez, Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Matt Holliday, & Brad Hawpe, to name a few.

Other interests include photography, scrapbooking, music/karaoke, web design, writing/blogging, traveling, movies, concerts, and bowling.
