Our Team

Brett Anderson (Founder) 

Brett is a passionate Viking fan hailing from Sin City, Las Vegas. He can remember, as a child, scraping his knee on the playground and his friends being completely shocked by the purple blood trickling from the wound. When Brett isn’t scouring the Internet for some semblance of Vikings news, he enjoys blindly putting money on them to beat whoever their opponent may be, and daydreams about being their next Tight End. Brett graduated from UNLV with a degree in Architecture and specializes in web/graphic design; he hopes to provide this site’s visitors with the best Vikings experience on the net. @brettAnderson87

Adam Warwas (Founder) 

Adam is a case study in how the human male can allow a hobby to turn into a life-consuming obsession.  After serving for about three years as the Editor at Vikings Gab, he decided to branch off on his own and start Vikings Territory, hoping someone might accidentally visit the site from time to time.  Now, he is thrilled to present you with one of the most comprehensive and analytical Vikings sites that you are going to find.  More than anything, he hopes you enjoy reading VT as much as he enjoys putting it together. @VikingTerritory

Austin Belisle (Editor In Chief) 

Austin Belisle is the West Coast’s biggest Vikings fan, a football diehard cheering on the purple and yellow from sunny California. After graduating from San Jose State University in 2014, he began working full-time in corporate marketing and blogging on various sports websites. Austin’s passion for the Vikings led him to Vikings Territory, where he hopes to share his lifelong enthusiasm for the team with readers on a daily basis.

Andy Carlson (Podcast Producer) 

Andy Carlson is life-long Vikings fan with a sense of humor to help dull the pain of that existence. Sports are fun. They’re meant to be be enjoyed and not taken too seriously. He lives that mantra over at the Purple FTW! Podcast: Dedicated to the Pain AND Pleasure that is the Minnesota Vikings. Check out his shenanigans there and on Twitter @AndyCarlsonShow and @PurpleForTheWin.

Drew Mahowald (Contributor)

Drew Mahowald is a student at Saint John’s University (MN) majoring in Media Communication. He proclaims himself Jim Kleinsasser’s number one fan. The first Vikings game Drew remembers watching is the 41-0 blowout loss to the Giants in the 2000 NFC Championship game. Despite this, he has developed a deep knowledge and passion for the team. When he isn’t writing about the Vikings, Drew is usually out golfing with friends or eating Little Caesar’s pizza. You can find more of his work at CanisHoopus.com, the SB Nation affiliate Minnesota Timberwolves blog, or on Twitter at @DrewMahowald.

Adam Patrick (Contributor) 

Adam has been rooting for the Vikings ever since he saw Randall Cunningham win NFC Special Teams Player of the week in 1997. Since his career sports highlights include 3rd place at 5th Grade Golf Camp and catching a ball during a soccer game (he was not playing goalie), Adam turned to writing. He considers himself a ‘Vikings Realist’ as he does not shy away from criticizing the purple and gold if necessary. He will not always write about the popular topics, but his goal is to provide readers with content they cannot find anywhere else. Follow him on Twitter @Str8_Cash_Homey
