About me: I started talking to PokerStrategy.com about a job in late March, and on April 1st, 2011 my first article appeared on the site. When Black Friday hit on April 15th I began doing a large amount of our coverage related to that. Likewise, I've been behind a lot of our Full Tilt news coverage. Beyond poker industry news, I also write many of our tournament recaps and interviews, and I help with creating news pieces about promotions that are being run.

Prior to working in the poker industry, I was a stockbroker on Wall Street, and I still live in New York. When I play poker, I prefer tournaments and mixed games- although with the legal situation the way it is, most of my play now is done through occasional trips to Atlantic City.
