After graduating Summa Cum Laude with a BA and MA in Political Science from Emory University, Nathan went to work for McKinsey & Co. as a strategic management consultant in the Atlanta office. After working for various fortune 500 companies, he was placed on a study with a private equity shop and soon saw the thrill of being an entrepreneur.
A few years later, when his wife astutely noted that he needed to really make some money given all of the time he spent being obsessed with his hobby fantasy football, an idea was born. Having been playing fantasy football for over 15 years, and often winning his league while serving as a "consultant" for his friends, Nathan decided to launch thefantasyconsultant.com, his own fantasy football consulting service, in 2005. Clients of TFC could sign up and get personalized advice based on hardcore analytics that enabled them to make the playoffs at a rate of over 90 percent, while 50 percent went on to win at least one of their leagues each year.
From the success of TFC, Nathan was featured on TV stations CBS 19 in Cleveland and Sports Time Ohio and was one of the handpicked on-site experts for the inaugural Fantasy Football SuperDraft in Las Vegas in 2009. He also hosted his own radio show in the Northeast Ohio area, The Fantasy Football Power Hour from 2005-2008 on ESPN 850 WKNR and That Fantasy Show on WMMS 100.7 in 2009.
In 2009-2010, Nathan joined Ashton Kutcher as the fantasy football authority on the Streamy nominated online show, Fantasy Football Live. Following the success of that partnership, Nathan sold half of his business to Kutcher’s company Katalyst and they have been working on building the brand. Nathan is now the host of SiriusXM Fantasy Consultant show every Monday-Thursday from 5-7pm ET on Sirius 210/XM 87 and is thrilled and honored to join the excellent team at CBSSports.com.
Nathan will contribute articles and analysis to CBSsports.com every week and will also appear as an on-air analyst for Fantasy Football Today every Friday and Sunday.
Nathan lives in Cleveland with his wife Elissa and their two children Arden and Bryce. In his spare time, Nathan loves hanging with his family, eating Prime Rib, golfing, sports investing, and attending WWE Events including the Showcase of the Immortals, WrestleMania.
