Meet Our Authors - Rick Rockwell
Since the spring of 2018, I've called Panoramacity my home. After one meeting, and a lengthy conversation about the Buffalo Bills, I was hired as a sportswriter, and this employment was off to a fantastic start. With roughly a decade as a fulltime freelance writer under my belt, I finally found a company that would provide me with the opportunity to use all of my writing skills, experiences, passions and personality to spread my wings like a peacock.
Both Panoramacity and myself have grown during our time together, just like any good marriage should. I expanded their horizons on sports such as:
Currently, I'm referred to as the "King of the Blog" for Panoramacity. It's a title I wear with pride along with my superhero t-shirts during our sports betting podcast each and every week on YouTube. I'm aiming to add the title "King of the Vlog" to my role with the company as well, but there's only so much that the viewers can handle of this pretty face.
It's hard to view my role with Panoramacity as a full-time job because it is a full-time blast for me. I enjoy all of the topics I write about even sports betting news topics. In my 10+ years as a full time content provider, I've come a long way from my first projects on erectile dysfunction and funeral home services to covering some of the most significant sporting events in the world like the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, Miss Universe pageant, the Daytona 500, Tour de France, and WrestleMania.
