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 the ethics of sports fandom. 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

This book offers readers a pitch-side view of the ethics of fandom. Its accessible six chapters are aimed both at true sports fans whose conscience may be occasionally piqued by their pastime, and at those who are more certain of the moral hazards involved in following a team or sport.

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 - as far as I know, we are not related. Here is how to pronounce my name. You should probably not pronounce it like this.
