As someone who inherited my love of sports from my Mom, I am especially interested in stories that deviate from traditional hero narratives and the image of a father and son playing catch. I'm especially passionate about baseball, which I grew up around, and competitive logging, a sport I picked up and fell in love with as a college student in Maine.
My goal is to bring the big business of sports down to earth by humanizing players and making myself a useful conduit between the athletes on the field and those of you who like to read and learn about them.
