Bill Dawson,Contributor

Bill Dawson is an ex-journalist from out west who rarely writes in the third person. He spent 23 years writing and editing at eight newspapers (job hopper!) in six states: Oregon, northern California, Alaska, Indiana, southern California, and Minnesota. Yes, northern and southern Cal are two different states — of mind, anyway. He wrote a whole bunch of baseball stories in the late 1990s before being sucked into feature writing. Bill’s also a movie nut and a book fiend who enjoys boring classics like The Brothers Karamazov (liar!) as well as crime fiction, spy novels, and true stories that teach him something. He currently resides just outside of Denver with his wife of 24 years and their 16-year-old daughter.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.

Executive Team

Zach Best Co-CEO

Best co-founded the company in April 2007. He manages the growth of the network from a business and financial standpoint.

Matt Blake Co-CEO

Blake joined the company as a partner in 2011, overseeing the network's technology, product, and advertising efforts .

Patrick Allen VP, Content & Strategy

Patrick is VP, Content and Strategy for the FanSided. He has been with the network since 2009 when he was hired to be the expert at Arrowhead Addict. He currently heads up FanSided's editorial headquarters in Chicago and is proud to be a fan of the world champion Kansas City Chiefs. To ensure his head doesn't get too big, he continues to cheer for his home town Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians. The Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA Championship was the greatest day of his life. Go Buckeyes.
