About me

They say when you turn your passion into your profession, you don?t have to work a day. Well, that has been my story. Grew up as a pro wrestling fan during WWE?s famed Attitude Era. It took the epic Ladder Match between Hardy Boyz, Edge & Christian and The Dudley Boyz to convert me to a wrestling fan for life time and here we are. I would have bitten your hand off if you would?ve told me back then that I will covering my favorite form of sports entertainment for a living. EssentiallySports was the beginning of this journey as a writer and I had a shining moment of personal and professional glory when The Bloodline?s Wise Man, Paul Heyman shared my article on his Instagram story. Since then I have taken up the role of an editor at ES for WWE division and continue to provide coverage of WWE?s biggest events as well as marquee PPVs from AEW. I?ve had the chance to cover events such as WrestleMania 39, SummerSlam, AEW?s All In and much more. Pro wrestling is on my mind 24x7 and when I have time away from work, I like to get into fantasy fiction reading and war documentaries online.
