About Jeff Burtka

I am a writer, a lawyer, and a former rowing coach.

I have a B.A. from the University of Michigan with a double major in History and English Literature. I also possess a J.D. from George Mason University in Virginia. 

I am a native Michigander who moved out of the state in 1998 and finally returned home in 2014. I love my home state, and the city of my birth, Detroit. Even though I was away for more than a decade, I always was a Michigander at heart. 

I also write freelance articles for various publications and write about running at a blog called Avid Runners. To see more of my work, click here. Click here to check out Avid Runners.
