I was born in Paris, France before moving to the US at a young age. Returning to Paris for middle school, combined with growing up in a French household, has provided me with the opportunity to watch and gain an understanding of many sports throughout several cultures. The fact that my father lives in Brazil has certainly also helped with this. However, it was in New York City, where I reside at the moment, that I was immersed into sports. At the age of six, I watched as France won the 1998 World Cup. From then on, I spent more time studying every sport than I did doing my homework. I have played a wide variety of sports competitively, but my love of writing has always pointed me in the direction of sports journalism. Although I enjoy reporting on a wide variety of sports, I specialize in Soccer, the NBA, and the NFL.
