Vanessa Portrait of me.jpg

The above portrait of me is by Vanessa Brassey. You can see her work on her Instagram.

I write about being a sports fan - what it means, why it matters, and how we fans should act. Recently, I have written about "sportswashing" with Kyle Fruh and Alfred Archer, and Alfred and I have just published Why It's OK to Be a Sports Fan.


You can buy the book here.

I have appeared on the local NPR talk show "Connections with Evan Dawson" several times, written for The New Statesman, AEON, Prospect, and The Prindle Post. I've also spoken to journalists at El Pais and The Huffington Post about the ethics of sports. 

As far as I know, there's only one famous Wojtowicz, but I am not related to the bank robber who inspired Dog Day Afternoon. Here is how to pronounce my name. As somebody who doesn't speak Polish, I'm very liberal with the pronunciation, but you should probably not pronounce it like this.
