Andrew Seifter



I grew up in the Boston area, and worked in the Red Sox ticket office during the magical 2004 championship season. Since then, I've been a professional writer and editor in Washington, DC. Writing about the news has paid the bills, but covering fantasy sports has always been my passion. Prior to joining FantasyPros, I was a baseball columnist at Bleacher Report.
