So it’s that time of year again. The doldrums of Winter have given way to the bright days and crisp and warming breezes of spring-Baseball is here.

There are sometimes divides between people that enjoy sports or physical activities and those of the “nerd” persuasion. I have always been a part of each world and I don’t understand why some say you can’t do both. Baseball is ideal for people that love math, as the amount of statistics and detail and the variables are a nerd’s dream. Anyway, I’m drifting from my subject. Nerd’s unite and don’t discriminate against one another.

As a nerd, and working for That Nerd Show, I’ve decided to expand my coverage to include baseball as well. I play currently, and have loved it my entire life. With baseball and comics, movies and some other things, I also love music and am a songwriter as well. So, naturally I’ve decided to combine these pursuits with a new podcast called “Songwriters on Baseball” or SOBs if you will. It is co-hosted by my good friend and fellow songwriter and baseball enthusiast Hank Van Hawkins. Hank and I have been friends for years and have written several songs together. We’re really excited about our new endeavor. This won’t take away from my responsibilities at That Nerd Show and you can still expect to hear me and read my work in this very spot for a long time to come.

Writer and lover of life. I've been writing for a long time in one form or another. I just finished the first installment of my comic book 'Vile: Legends of Thunder Valley that will also be a pen and paper role-playing game in the future. I also have a development deal with INC. Comics for a future series titled "Gears and Ghosts." I just moved to Seattle and I also coach and play baseball. I just finished up a rough copy of my first children's book "Helgen's Tale." No table of contents, no pictures except for the cover. Just a story and some basic information. You can get it for kindle @ Swing by my SOBS podcast also. It's about baseball, music, comics and some general ramblings by two men that never really grew up. We have guests that haven't either. R
