Tom Whalen



I earned my MA from SUNY New Paltz, where I continue to teach college grammar and writing. I also manage Rhino Records in New Paltz and am an avid horror and b-movie collector. Born and raised on Staten Island, I grew up a Yankees and Knicks fan, but I have since become, for better or worse, fairly "sports agnostic" thanks to my interest in sports analytics and fantasy. You can find more of my writing at numberFire.
