Christian is a published author (Lucky Bastard) and former Wall St. broker so he has lived "the life." My intent is to help elevate the business so it’s treated and covered with the same respect as Wall Street. There is class in the crass, I’m just trying to navigate through the nonsense. There is plenty of nonsense in the sports/gaming business and Christian often writes from the emotional and psychological perspective of the gambler.
"I enjoy many things. I try to not let my fears limit my possibilities. Add to the good & dissolve the bad."
