I am a lifelong soccer fan who grew up rooting against the Timbers in Rochester, New York. However, after years of watching every level of American soccer, I fell in love with the Timbers Army. So, when the Timbers announced their move to MLS it gave me just the excuse I needed to start rooting for them as well.

My passions in life are writing, beer, and the beautiful game so it only makes sense that I would end up writing for Stumptown Footy here in Portland.
