In the words of Hova...allow me to reintroduce myself.
Hello, I am Patrick J. Sauer and it's a pleasure to meet you.
I was raised in Billings, Montana (AKA "The Magic City"), and now call New York City's Greenwich Village home. I attended Marquette University shortly after Chris Farley, but our favorite alum did come back to speak and knock over the podium at graduation. (We miss you big guy). I later went to the University of Southern California where our commencement speaker was Bill Cosby, so academia has been really good to me. After getting a Masters ensuring that I am a professional writer - it says so right on the degree - I became an "author," writing The Complete Idiot's Guide to the American Presidents, Court TV Presents: You Be the Judge, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Surviving Anything and the sadly now out-of-print The Complete Idiot's Guide to Starting A Reading Group (Damn you, Oprah).
I am a currently a senior editor at the TheDailyTube.com, (check it out, free web vids) a contributing editor at Inc., and have written for ESPN, Popular Science, Fast Company, Details, Men's Journal, Desert Living, Success, Essence, Time Out New York, Budget Living, Mr. Beller's Neighborhood, Jewcy and Smith. It's a career that's taken me to some interesting places, including a castle in Scotland, which explains the falconry and Groundskeeper Willie getup. And yes, I ate the haggis.
