Brief info

I grew up in Washington DC rooting for the Redskins, and I think their lack of success has made it easier for me to follow the rest of the league and stay objective in my opinions. I've been playing fantasy football for around 15 years now and it's been a passion of mine since I can remember. I'm always trying to find an edge on the competition and the idea of sharing my outlook on the fantasy landscape has always been intriguing. I originally went to the University of Missouri to pursue Sports Journalism, but ended up with a Psychology degree that I obtained at the end of July.

I'm currently debating going back to school to study Statistics and hopefully end up working in the sports analytics field. I believe that pure data can give an edge in fantasy football, but there's always context to those numbers that I'm intrigued by as well.

Over the past few months I've started a podcast called Chasing Upside, where my main goal has been to improve behind a mic and give my takes on the NFL landscape with an emphasis on fantasy football. I've also written some articles, including making weekly predictions towards the tail end of last season.
