The Idea Behind Glorified Crew
I created the Glorified Crew blog to explore the masterpiece that is HBO’s The Sopranos.
The more I watched the show, the more I felt connected to the show and so many of the cultural issues the series highlighted from 1999 to 2007, a period in my life when I experienced significant changes.
Over the years, I’ve found myself intensely drawn to the complex lives of the Soprano family and the genius behind each scene.
As a longtime devoted fan and meticulous observer of the series, I wanted to create a space to share my love for the show and its multi-layered narrative, and thus, Glorified Crew was born.

Professionally, I am a healthcare marketer.
I have to keep a square job for appearances.
In my free time – whatever happened there – I enjoy writing, traveling, learning about SEO, mainly doing anything outdoors, attending sporting events, traveling, impromptu road trips – the usual stuff a 38-year-old married guy likes to do.

This blog doesn’t quite pay the bills yet.
So, yeah, again with the money!
In 2015, I founded A Miner Detail, a Maryland politics blog where I write about and dissect Maryland politics.
I earned my B.A. in Political Science from Duquesne University and an MBA from Mount St. Mary’s University.
I’m married to my lovely wife, Kim. We have two children and live in Gaithersburg, MD.
In September 2022, I co-founded The Senior Soup, a Maryland senior resources digital media hub, to help older adults and their families quickly access the critical resources they need.
I founded Delta Marketing, a digital marketing and search engine optimization agency. I love helping small businesses build robust online lead-generation platforms.

You know how some people say they’ve watched their favorite show “a million times”?
In my case with “The Sopranos,” it’s true.
I’ve taken the scenic route through the New Jersey mob world, not once or twice, but a whopping fifty or more times (and counting) for every episode.
I could probably recite most of the scenes – a bit of a poseur if you ask me.
I might not have made my bones in the TV industry, but when it comes to dissecting the intricate details of every scene, I earned a Ph.D. in Soprano’s fandom and trivia.
My passion isn’t just limited to binge-watching; it’s about diving deep, analyzing, and, most importantly, sharing all those juicy tidbits with fellow enthusiasts like you.
So, rest assured, you’ll find something you like if you’re here for a light-hearted take on Paulie’s latest antics or a philosophical dive into Dr. Melfi’s sessions.
Anyway, $4.00 a pound.
