About

While I have worked in the accounting field for 13 years, my passion has always been sports. The passion for sports dates back some twenty years ago at the height of the Bulls-Pistons rivalry in the late 1980's. Since that time, I have played and followed basketball very closely, while forming my own opinions and observations in the process. I love to talk about every sport to some degree, but the two that I write about the most are basketball and football. As an Illinois resident, it only makes sense that my favorite teams are the Bulls and Bears.

I began writing online sports content in December of 2008 for Yahoo! Contributor Network and the process was very slow-going at first. However, as my writing progressed, things began to change. After submitting beat assignments for almost a year, I was eventually accepted as a Featured Sports Contributor. Over a four-year period, I have published over 550 articles with YCN, including 300 articles that were published on Yahoo Sports, mostly pertaining to the professional teams in my local region. In addition to that, I am also a Sports Journalist for Sports Rantz Magazine.

I feel very blessed and fortunate to have a 9-5 job as the saying goes, but I'm hoping to obtain at least a part-time job doing what I love to do the most - writing and talking about sports on a daily basis.
