I’m a reporter at the Northwest Herald in Crystal Lake, Ill., where I cover local sports in McHenry County and throughout the Chicago area. I was born in suburban Los Angeles, growing up with my nose planted in the newspaper pages by morning and my feet on the basketball court by evening.
In turn, I combined that love of reading and sports in pursuit of a career: sportswriting.
My story is hardly unique, but my business is telling other people’s unique stories. Before coming to Illinois, I interned at The Columbus Dispatch and the Orange County Register, and covered the USC football program as a beat reporter and columnist for the Daily Trojan, the campus newspaper.
And to contact me, here’s how.
