Senior Editor and founder of SabreNoise and Editorial Director of FanSided NHL. If you have any questions or comments on the site please email me at [email protected] I'm a wear white at home, blank sweater wearing fan, non laces type guy. I can't see spending money on a sweater with a guys name on it when he might not be around long enough to wear it out. If I am going to get a name on a sweater, its gonna be an old white home sweater, with either an 11 or a 7 on it.

I like to write for fun and enjoy what I do. My skills are being honed by my current college education at Niagara University where I am a double major in English and Communications Studies, with a primary focus in creative writing. My fan base is not wide, but I hope to make it wider through writing much more. I hope all that I produce here is enjoyed.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.

Executive Team
