The Man

The self-described “Fifth Grand Slam” — Craig discovered tennis in the 70’s as the sport was beginning to thrive. His dad, Norm, founded a group called the “Tennis Nuts,” hosting events around Rhode Island with yearly trips to the US Open. Clearly, this apple didn’t fall far from the tree. 

 Craig parlayed a middling high school career (on-court and academically) into a job teaching tennis after college. And, in a wild turn of events, traveled the pro tour in the late 90’s as Andre Agassi’s personal racquet tech. Craig is an insider, who knows everyone in tennis.

 Off-court he is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, a reluctant writer, and since 2020, the host of his eponymous podcast now in its 8th season.
