I'm a writer based in the Twin Cities. I write the Soccer Insider column for the Star Tribune, published on the soccer page of Saturday's sports section. I'm also one of the creators of The Sportive, an award-winning Minnesota/comic sports podcast. I've written for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the Minnesota Daily, authored eight children's sports books, and written about nearly every sport under the sun.

Find me on Twitter at @jmarthaler, which is probably the fastest way to get ahold of me if you need me.
