My name is Joey Kaufman (in case you missed it above). I’m a 22-year-old journalism student at the University of Southern California, expected to graduate in May 2013. I was born in suburban Los Angeles, growing up with my nose planted in the pages of the Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal by morning and my feet on the basketball court by evening.
Naturally, I combined my love of reading and sports in pursuit of a career: sportswriting.
That story is hardly unique, but my business is telling the unique stories of others, especially when they intersect with the world of sports. Over the last two years, I’ve worked as the managing editor for the Daily Trojan, USC’s campus newspaper, and interned at The Orange County Register and USA Today through its collegiate correspondent program.
This website serves as a professional hub, to highlight and chronicle my latest work for various news outlets. For more about me, feel free to check out my bio, resume, clips and blog, which can all be found here.
And to contact me, here’s how.
