I have been behind the scenes for ProSportsBlogging.com and have been a part of the inner workings with Onvi Media (onvi.com). Since the World Cup, I have stepped out from backstage to become a blogger and write about sports I love to watch the most. I'm from L.A. and naturally support the USA in soccer, but I also favor England, France, Spain, Italy and Brazil. This year I'm also watching out for South Africa. I also like baseball and follow the Dodgers - GO BLUE!
