Nathan was born in Mansfield, Ohio but moved to Akron in 2008 to attend The University of Akron where he studies English. Growing up, he was always a baseball fan and even asked his dad to build a full-sized, chain link backstop in the backyard (it never happened).
Nathan has served as copy chief and news editor for The Buchtelite, the independent newspaper of The University of Akron. Additionally, he has interned for Black Lawrence Press and The University of Akron Press, where he has performed various editorial work.
During the 2012 season, Nathan will be covering the Akron Aeros and has a Twitter account, @NathanCKemp.
