I came to Kukla’s Korner this past August after three-plus seasons of covering the Tampa Bay Lightning elsewhere. During that time, I managed to establish myself as one of the premier online sources for all things Bolts and amassed a loyal following and fanbase unlike any other in the Tampa Bay hockey community. During the 2009-10 season, I co-founded The Bolts Beat podcast (formerly known as BoltsBuzz Radio), a weekly one-hour Lightning and NHL-related show featuring exclusive interviews, commentary and opinion from myself, co-host Mike Corcoran (ESPN1040’s “Lightning Insider”) and fellow contributor, Mark Pukalo, of Additionally, I have contributed regular season and playoff game previews for, where I was also a featured blogger during the 2010 Olympics, covering “The Forgotten Five” underdog hockey nations.

Beasts of the Southeast will center around the Bolts primarily (BOSE headquarters, after all, is right here in Tampa, presently) but plenty of attention will be paid to Atlanta, Carolina, Florida and Washington as well. Naturally, I will also touch on leaguewide issues and special events from time to time.

Elsewhere, I serve as contributing editor to, a MMA site focusing primarily on the Florida fight scene.
