My name is Hayden Kim and I am a Eugene, Oregon native.
I've been an avid sports man my entire life, and in 2010, I was introduced to B/R and the world of sports writing. I haven't looked back.
Since then, I have amassed thousands of readers, a short stint as a NBA Featured Columnist, have written countless features/profiles, covered the first-ever College Football Playoff title game in Arlington, Texas, and have been published on the Register-Guard, LA Times, CBS Sports, and others throughout my six years as a writer.
I'm currently the Associate Sports Editor at Oregon's student newspaper Emerald Media Group and 2015 summer intern with Turner Sports' Production team. I've covered Oregon football, men's basketball, NBA, volleyball and softball.
I look forward to meeting and talking to all of you. This really is a great platform and I hope all of you take full advantage of it.
If you ever have any questions or wanna talk, feel free to email me at (firstname.lastname@example.org).

No problem! Happy to help!
Hey Hayden, as far as using full names, you should try to use them in headlines when possible. Using full names will help attract more reads from search engines. Same with early in your article. After using a full name, using a nickname or last name is fine.
No problem man,
I'll just cut and paste the exact quote from the B/R style guide:
We want to use em-dashes (—) instead of double-hyphens (--), en-dashes (–) or any other form of dash. The em-dash is the longest type of dash and is created by typing SHIFT-OPTION-(dash) on a Mac keyboard and ALT-0151 on a PC (hold down ALT while typing 0151 on the numeric keypad).
(NB: If you're working on a PC without a numeric keypad, you'll have to copy and paste em-dashes as necessary. Here's one to get you started: —)
There should be no spaces on either side of the em-dash. Proper formatting looks like—this.
Sir yes sir! Hope all's well and not-too-freezing in Oregon.
No problem Hayden! It was a really good piece!
You got it, man. I'm hoping he keeps it up. Should be a fun rest of the season for the Knicks.
No problem, Hayden! Bynum needs more touches in my opinion.
Hi Hayden, the simplest would be to copy and paste from the Internet. How about this: ( M dash — )
Sure thing, Hayden!
