Hi. I'm David. That's a picture of me being very impressed by the Grand Canyon.

I was born and raised in San Francisco, went to college in New York City, got an MA in Education, did some teaching, did some radio, moved to Charlotte, NC, wrote about (fantasy) sports for a few years, became a Charlotte Bobcats obsessive, was a business journalist for a few years, and then moved with my family back to the Bay Area.

Now, I work in development communications for an independent school, occasionally write about books, sports, cooking, or whatever in David A. Arnott THE BLOG, and constantly worry about Internet Brain Rot.

The easiest way to ask me about the merits of the 13-month calendar, whether the National League should adopt the designated hitter, or anything else, is via email at davidarnott8@gmail.com.

If that thumbnail work history above wasn't enough, know that my LinkedIn profile uses a photo in which I'm wearing a black v-neck t-shirt and have styled my hair in a way to signal that I am young, dynamic, creative, and yet also care about maintaining a smart-casual professional-ish appearance.

Photographs taken on my smartphone or Nikon D3400 and posted to my Instagram account illustrate how I'm Living My Best Life™ or, alternatively, Notice Things In A Unique Way.

When I was in high school, I started a band called 29 Sunset. There used to be another person in the group, but now it's just me and I've posted a bunch of my music on Soundcloud. I produced every song by myself, and they don't suck, in my opinion. When I find the time and/or get motivated to record more, those new songs will go on the 29 Sunset Bandcamp, on the off chance that one day I can get rich charging you to hear them.

I founded the Charlotte Bobcats blog Rufus on Fire and posted about the Cats almost every day for years. During the 2008-09 season, I attended 44 Bobcats games in person -- every home game, plus games in Cleveland, D.C., and Philadelphia. The Bobcats went 35-47 that year.

I've collected selections of my work from multiple sources and linked to them on a single page in an attempt to impress you with the variety of my output.
