By day, I'm a mild-mannered restaurant manager, devoted husband and dog lover. By night... well, actually always, I'm a passionate sports fan. Northwest born and bred, I've been a lifetime Seahawks season tickets holder. I earned my BA in Broadcast Journalism from Washington State University in 1991, and spent 6 years as a TV Sports Director before sliding back into the "real world." I started writing again two years ago, and I'm honored to have this platform to discuss and debate one of my greatest loves, the NFL. Specifically, I'm a draft geek, obsessed by the behind-the-scenes team building that happens 365 days a year. I'll be focusing mostly on the NFC West, but am looking forward to touching on any number of issues as they crop up. Most of all I finally have a valid excuse to spend hours looking through scouting video at home now: "Honey, I'm WORKING!!!"
