I’ve been thinking for awhile now about launching a spot online to do more than I can do in 140 characters, and to talk about things outside what I cover on the job. I’m a lifelong baseball fan (San Francisco Giants diehard from Day One), product of the pop culture of the 1960s and ’70s, and a member of the 1980s MTV generation. I danced in my living room to the Bee Gees in the late 1970s, saw every teen comedy flick of the ’80s multiple times, and have been going to Major League Baseball games since 1976. I worked in the front office of the Dodgers’ then-Triple A club, the Albuquerque Dukes, from 1991 through 1994, and on staff at the Baseball Winter Meetings in 1991, before moving on to college athletics, sports media and technology over the next decade. I continue to consult on sports-related projects from time to time, including fundraising for non-profit sports organizations and marketing projects for corporate sponsors.
By day I’m the managing partner in a consulting firm specializing in education institutions and non-profit organizations, and occasionally a college professor as well. Off the job I’m an avid amateur genealogist, music and movie lover, and wanna-be world traveler (haven’t quite started that yet).
I have no idea where this will go – if it goes anywhere – but that’s the beauty of the web…we don’t have to know yet…
