I have played and enjoyed baseball almost since I was old enough to walk, and have been an Atlanta Braves fan for about that long. I program software in my day job, so I am naturally a stat geek. That tends to translate well to my love of baseball where numbers are held with almost religious regard. I love writing, wrote for my college newspaper, used to be a staff writer for Atlanta Sports Then & Now, and hope to get published someday. I brag that I am a 5th Degree Black Belt in Aikido with black belts in two other disciplines, but really I'm just a teddy bear. When I'm not doing any of the obvious thing you imagine I do, I spend a lot of time bow hunting, playing guitar, and time with my daughter, Katie. She's a Braves fan too!
