About Me

By day I work in the Cancer Research field. I currently evaluate drug candidates at a small Biotech to treat cancer patients. It’s slow and a long process, but would be really rewarding to some day see results and positive outcomes in the patients we treat.

In my off time I like to write for many different topics, but often what’s grabbing my interest right now. That has been everything from Fantasy Baseball, to Professional Baseball to Everton FC. I’ve also started a few now closed blogs and even written a first rough draft of my first novel.

I’m originally from the Philadelphia area, but moved to Boston for College and never looked back. Being in the field I am this has worked out much better for me. There are places to work in Philadelphia but nothing like the level found here in Boston.

My Published Work

ESPN Analysis of Alex White and Rick Porcello

The Hardball Times (now part of FanGraphs) archive of my writing

I also wrote many articles for the now largely defunct Fire Brand of the AL (A Boston Red Sox Blog)

My Interests

As you can see sports have been a big interest of mine. I have followed and invested much of my previous years in th Red Sox and more recently Everton FC. Something about the game of soccer/football just seems to be exactly what I need. As someone who loves baseball it should be no surprise I don’t mind a slow game that builds. I also follow the Boston Bruins although I’ll always have a place in my heart for the 90’s Flyers.

Outside of sports I’ve spent the last 10 years developing a true love and perhaps an obsession for tech and Apple. I have gotten many iPhones and Mac computers. I am even typing this on my iPad Pro, but recently I have questioned as many of us are the effects of so much time with the world at our finger tips. That’s why much of the content I am working on writing is about this effect.

I enjoy reading books but wish I could read more. I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy, but often get bored when I see the same tropes over and over again. That’s when I read something out of left field like a great biography or a easy summer beach read just to mix it up. I also mix in science books/literature for work and the odd historical book on a topic that interests me. A great recent read of that kind was Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
