Welcome, stranger, and thanks for stopping by. I've been writing stories in Northwest Montana since 2015, first at a local daily and now at the Flathead Beacon, an award-winning weekly paper distributed throughout our wild, strange and breathtakingly beautiful part of the country. I focus primarily sports for reasons that will become evident if you keep reading, but I've written (and love writing) about a vast array of subjects.
Before taking up this writing thing full-time, I worked for 11 years in professional baseball, first as a media manager/broadcaster and later as the general manager of two minor league teams just outside Chicago. In addition to writing words, I've also spoken them aloud (as a play-by-play radio broadcaster, TV host and podcaster) and I'm competent as a page designer, web manager, event manager and people manager.
Thanks for stopping by, and if you like what you see and think we could work well together, let me know at andyvianomedia(at)gmail(dot) com.
