Meet Our Authors - Rick Rockwell

Rick Rockwell Author

Since the spring of 2018, I’ve called GamblingSites.org my home. After one
meeting, and a lengthy conversation about the Buffalo Bills, I was hired as a
sportswriter, and this employment was off to a fantastic start. With roughly a
decade as a fulltime freelance writer under my belt, I finally found a company
that would provide me with the opportunity to use all of my writing skills,
experiences, passions and personality to spread my wings like a peacock.

Both GamblingSites.org and myself have grown during our time together, just like any
good marriage should. I expanded their horizons on sports such as:

Currently, I’m referred to as the “King of the Blog” for GamblingSites.org. It’s a title
I wear with pride along with my superhero t-shirts during our Odds On
Favorites
sports betting podcast each and every week on YouTube. I’m aiming
to add the title “King of the Vlog” to my role with the company as well, but
there’s only so much that the viewers can handle of this pretty face.

It’s hard to view my role with GamblingSites.org as a full-time job because it is a
full-time blast for me. I enjoy all of the topics I write about even sports
betting news topics. In my 10+ years as a full time content provider, I’ve come
a long way from my first projects on erectile dysfunction and funeral home
services to covering some of the most significant sporting events in the world
like the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, Miss Universe pageant, the Daytona
500, Tour de France, and WrestleMania.
