Age: 44

Birthplace: Hamilton Township, NJ

Education: University of Pennsylvania (BSE from Wharton)

Hometown: Somewhere in NJ

Family: Yes, somehow I duped a beautiful, brilliant woman into thinking I was a catch. All I have to say is thank goodness women are less judgmental than men as time passes. :) We've also got three hilarious, endearing and downright awesome sons.

Years playing fantasy football: This will be my 24th year if memory serves.

Favorite FF smack talk: Oh [insert player name here]? He's on page 3 of my rankings.

Years writing about fantasy football: I'm pretty sure this is my 16th year doing stuff with Footballguys. Time flies. I know I've been doing this since before Chase Stuart's voice changed.

Favorite FBG feature: Asking me to pick one feature is like asking a father to choose between his children. It's the sum total of what we offer that makes us a must-have service.

Organized football experience: I have a long and storied history watching football. I also am actively involved in my sons' rec program, and have been the play-by-play announcer for our rec and high school programs for years.

Favorite NFL team: Philadelphia Eagles [season ticket holder]

Favorite college team: Louisville

Favorite fan moment: Watching my Eagles win the SUPER BOWL against the Patriots!

Favorite player of all time: Reggie White and Brian Dawkins in a photo finish

NFL rule(s) I would change if I could: I would ask that the competition committee remember that defense is as important (and exciting) as offense.

Favorite movie(s): The Big Chill, Black Dynamite, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Silverado, Avengers

Favorite musical genres/albums/artists: The Beatles, The Beastie Boys, Jay Z, A Tribe Called Quest, Stevie Wonder, Childish Gambino, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

What I read: I'm as passionate about comic books as I am fantasy football, but I also find time to read novels and droves of news and analysis on the internet.

Hobbies: Comic books, fantasy sports, running, reading, podcasting

Favorite TV show(s): The Wire, Game of Thrones, Deadly Class

Least favorite household chore: Paying the landscapers

Dream job: Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics (ne Marvel Entertainment) OR General Manager of the Philadelphia Eagles
