I’ve been a loyal reader of GamblingSites.org since the summer of 2018. And
when I heard they were looking for authors based in Canada, I jumped at the
chance to be one of their maple syrup connoisseurs! Just kidding, I’m their
Toronto-based sports and casino gambling content author. As a recent addition to
the team, most of my writing so far has been about casinos, sports, and laws
that are specific to online gambling in Canada.
I started writing about sports in 2007 during my first year at U of T
Mississauga, but I didn’t start freelancing until after I graduated. I started
contributing to a few sports websites and eventually stumbled into the gambling
world in 2014.
At a local casino, you can usually find me playing poker, looking for the
best snacks, and contemplating on whether I should bet on some ponies (I usually
don’t). Because of a few losses in the past, I’m no longer the most frequent
sports bettor, but I still root for the Raptors!
I was born and raised in Toronto and don’t really plan on living anywhere
else. My fiancee and I spend our weekends exploring local bars, biking, and
watching A LOT of television in our very tiny apartment. I work full-time as a
freelance author and get paid to talk about the things I enjoy. With my
extensive background in sports betting and casino gambling, I share my knowledge
(and my mistakes) with other readers every day.
