As a former goalkeeper, I find beauty in defense and dedication on the soccer pitch. For me, a fingertip save is just as elegant as a top corner goal, and a crunching tackle is more impressive than a nutmeg.

In my writing I love to highlight the unsung heroes of the game, the small clubs, the little-known players, and the forgotten moments. Writing for The18 allows me to illuminate these underdogs and showcase soccer as the beautiful yet gritty sport it is.
