Currently a student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State.

I was born in New York City but moved to the Big Island of Hawaii before reaching the age of one. I've been asked too many times why I made the move from paradise, especially during the summer months, but spend a few years as a sports fan on an island with none and you may see where I am coming from.

Growing up in Hawaii made it hard to have teams to call my own and led me to become more attached to individual athletes rather than teams. Since moving to Phoenix in 2008 I have felt spoiled with the NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB franchises in town, as well as spring training baseball.

I like to see all the local Arizona teams and ASU sports doing well, but still remain a hopeless optimist for Hawaii Warrior (not rainbow) football. Colt Brennan for Heisman!
