I was born and raised in Portland and recently graduated from college in New Orleans where I learned the joys of Mardi Gras, hurricane evacuations, and swamp fires. In the midst of all that, I occasionally studied political science.

My first Timbers game was a playoff game in 2007 against the Vancouver Whitecaps and I've been hooked ever since. (They won, for the record, 3-0 in that game, 3-1 on aggregate.) Aside from soccer, I love photography, beer, and books.
