I am a college student in Queens who double majors in Sociology and Psychology with a minor in Journalism. If all goes well, I want to specialize in the Sociology of Sports and study the Mets. I am a lifelong Mets fan and have been floating around MMO since '07. I do not have any social media, so spam my Disqus if you need me or check out my podcasts with Matthew Marrero on things like Wrestling, TV, and Video Games.
