I started covering the Sounders in 2010 after a decade-long career working in newspapers as a beat writer, columnist and editor. I started co-managing Sounder at Heart shortly thereafter, helping oversee some of our biggest growth period. From 2012-2014 I was the Sounders beat writer for MLSsoccer.com. I left that position to join SB Nation full time, first as the manager of our MLS blogs and then to oversee all of our soccer blogs. The one constant has been my connection to the community on Sounder at Heart. This is where I rediscovered my love for writing and where I feel most comfortable sharing my views, which I never try to hide my rooting interests. I strongly believe that all writers have biases and that honesty is more important than pretending to be neutral. In addition to my regular columns and blog posts on Sounder at Heart, you can also listen to me talk Sounders on the podcast Nos Audietis.
