Author Bio

Resa Goldberg portraitI have more than 20 years experience as a journalist for radio, television, newspapers and magazines and a master’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Georgia. I began my career as a business reporter and writer, interviewing entrepreneurs and executives from industries ranging from riverboat casinos to luxury bicycling vacations to big league booksellers. Along the way, I learned a lot about sports and the business of sports and have been fortunate to have interviewed dozens of professional athletes in baseball, football, NASCAR, hockey, basketball and much more.

I have covered the education and entertainment industries extensively and would feel at ease talking to anyone about most anything. My work has been published in both local and national publications including Pro, Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal, Winston Cup Scene and Winston Cup Illustrated. I helped launch three magazines in Charlotte, including My School Rocks! magazine, where I served as Editor-in-Chief. I currently run my own full-service writing, editing and content strategy firm.

I am an avid kayaker, hiker and gym rat. But I also will throw in some rock climbing or ice-skating or water skiing, depending on the season. I love my Golden Retriever (Bo); cooking (strawberry-rhubarb crisp, seared tuna and sesame noodles, matzoball soup, Mediterranean chicken and the most awesome gluten-free, turkey sausage pizza you've ever had!); alt rock (The Hunna, The Starting Line, Sugarcult, The Struts and Spoon) and writing or reading (see my list of favs) without interruption. I laugh at shows like Eastbound and Down, Curb Your Enthusiasm and most movies with Will Ferrell and at myself and always look for the humor. If I can make someone smile with my words, that's the best compliment I can receive. Just like Cal Naughton Jr. said in Talladega Nights, "I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo T-shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I’m here to party!"
