Bradley Woodrum is a freelance writer with degrees in English and economics, and a contributing columnist for DRaysBay. He co-founded the blog Cubs Stats and has penned award-winning poetry and nationally published short stories. He presently works as a freelance editor for economics, finance, and accounting textbooks by day; and by night, he straps on leotards and a cape, walks into the next room of his house, and blogs about the world of baseball.
In his free time, Bradley also composes music, makes little movies, and plays basketball in Chinatown – all of which is code for “watches Spongebob and old Robotech episodes in pajama pants while eating Nutella straight from the jar.” Readers who cannot get enough of Brad, which the American Public Health Association now recognizes as a genetic disorder, may find his artsy-fartsy, mamby-pamby poetry and short stories on his blog, Homebody and Woman.
