Hey thanks for checking out my website! If you've come this far, I guess you won't mind me talking about myself a little bit.
I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and fell in love with sports at a young age. I couldn't eat breakfast as a kid without a sports page open in front of me every morning, and I waited anxiously for the mail to arrive on Thursdays so I could read through the latest Sports Illustrated. I gravitated towards basketball, and as a player in high school was fortunate enough to join my school's 1,000 point club and be selected to the All-State team my senior season.
When my dream of playing college basketball wasn't realized, I turned my focus towards a career in sports media. Since that decision, I have taken any and every opportunity to improve my skills as a multi-platform storyteller and learn as much as I can. After four years in Ball State Sports Link, an award-winning immersive learning program, I decided to further my education with a one-year masters program at Northwestern's Medill school, along the way writing for some of the biggest editorial brands in the world.
I currently live in Los Angeles and work as a News Assistant for The New York Times, gathering data on their COVID-19 project.
I live my life by and for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and my faith is the most important thing in my life. I hope to exemplify the qualities of creativity, hard work, authenticity and passion in everything I do.
