I am a 31-year-old high school journalism teacher (print/newspaper and broadcast/television) in Las Vegas, Nevada who used to work for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and his high school paper and has now just gotten back into writing for the first time in several years.
I am married to the most amazing woman in the world and we have two kids a three-year-old daughter (Emma) and a boy (Gavin) who was born on March 1st.
I was born in Detroit before moving to South Florida until 1993 when my family moved to Las Vegas, right before my freshman year of high school. I graduated from Silverado High School in 1997 and attended UNLV afterwards, earning a bachelors degree in secondary English education. I then went on to earn post-graduate degrees in urban education (masters degree) and educational leadership/administration (educational specialist degree).
Since this blog will primarily be sports-based, it is important to note that I have a rooting interest in all Miami-based professional teams (Dolphins, Heat, Marlins, Panthers) and my alma mater, UNLV. I also typically root for the UNR Wolfpack despite the fact they are UNLV’s natural rivals (I have two sisters who attend there). And in college football I tend to root for the University of Miami, Florida since UNLV’s football program is abysmal.
