I am a freelance baseball writer living in Corvallis, Oregon. For the past 30 years I have been mainly a computer professional by day, but this site is devoted to the my sideline. I spent my childhood in Connecticut, my college years in New York and several years in Rhode Island and Massachusetts before moving to Oregon in 1993. I am now joined by Jane, Maya, and Drew in the idyllic/rainy Pacific Northwest.
