The New Jersey Devils have been heating up lately, thanks to spectacular efforts from players likeÂ Martin Brodeur andÂ Jaromir Jagr.Â However, big off-season acquisitions likeÂ Damien BrunnerÂ andÂ Michael Ryder have been slumping through the success that the team has begun to experience. The summer of 2012 saw the loss of bothÂ Ilya Kovalchuk andÂ David Clarkson. As the season began, [&]
With the first quarter of the season behind them, the New Jersey Devils are looking at a mediocre 7-8-5 record, which seats them in the middle of a tight Metropolitan division. Given their early struggles, this could be much worse; however, they have recently begun to put together some consistency and have maintained a solid [&]
Haven’t posted to Pucks & Pitchforks in a while, so I figured I’d put up a big one. Recaps the first 20 games (25%) of the season, in which the Devils have run into some challenges, but responded appropriately to keep themselves alive.

So here’s my big return to Tumblr, after a long and typical hiatus.
I graduated from SUCO in May with a lot more debt than education, and couldn’t think of anything psychology-related that I wanted to do. So I decided I wanted to become a writer. So I did.
After getting an internship-type gig with Mycollegepub.com writing entertainment pieces about college life, music, and drugs, I started doing some work for Textbroker. I’m still doing TB, accepting all different types of writing assignments. Usually I write web copy for small businesses and informative/entertaining articles for blogs.
Around mid-October I started writing for the New Jersey Devils Fansided page, Pucks & Pitchforks. As an unpaid Staff Writer, I am only required to contribute a mere four articles per month, but it’s fun as shit so once my schedule starts to develop some regularity I’ll be doing quite a bit more. Hopefully I can move up the ranks eventually, but in the meantime it’s good to have on the resume.
I recently applied for a writing position with a company called Student Experts, based out of Arizona. Thanks to the experience I’ve accrued throughout the summer, I landed a job doing pretty much the same thing I’ve been doing with Textbroker (mainly search engine optimization) but for a good chunk more money.
So since I’m trying to break into the writing scene, I figure I should probably try to spread my shit like wildfire. Thus, I’ll be posting a lot of my original content (or at least links) on here.

Just started writing for a website called Mycollegepub.com. This one’s about a gnarly punk/reggae band called The Expendables. Check it out folks!
