Based in Los Angeles, I am an SI.com staff writer covering the National Basketball Association.
Prior to joining the SI.com team in October 2012, I covered the NBA for CBSSports.com’s Eye On Basketball NBA blog for two years, while also covering the Portland Trail Blazers for Blazersedge.com from Dec. 2007 until July 2014. Before joining CBSSports.com in October 2010, I served as the editor of SB Nation Seattle, regularly contributed to various SB Nation sites and co-hosted The Dontonio Wingcast, a basketball podcast.
My basketball writing has been published or profiled in Sports Illustrated, The Oregonian, the Vancouver Columbian and the Arizona Republic. I have been a regular guest on CBS Radio News and Comcast SportsNet Northwest, among other outlets. My other appearances include ESPN’s SportsCenter, MSNBC, Headline News, CNN World Sport, KGW 8 (NBC) Live at 7PM, KPTV 12 (Fox) Oregon Sports Final, and Blazers Broadcasting’s Courtside.
My freelance work has been published in Pro Basketball Prospectus, Portland Business Journal, Portland Monthly Magazine, Providence (RI) Journal, Davis (CA) Enterprise, Open City Literary Journal, PDX Magazine, Sports Northwest Magazine, HoopsHype.com, GQ.com and many other online outlets.
My assignments have included the NBA Finals and playoffs, NBA Draft, NBA All-Star Weekend, NCAA Tournament, Las Vegas Summer League, MIT’s Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, and USA Basketball Olympics Training, among others.
I am a graduate of the Writing Seminars at The Johns Hopkins University and a member of the Professional Basketball Writers Association. I was born in Portland, Oregon, and have spent most of my life in the Pacific Northwest.
Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to hear from you.
