About

I am a recent graduate from The University of Iowa who has a love for sports of all kinds (except NASCAR and Tennis, sorry). I grew up a fan of all the Chicago teams, and when it came time as a young fan to decide Cubs or White Sox... I chose the Black and White.

I also love college sports and first became a fan of the Michigan Wolverines and their dominant team of 1997 featuring Brian Griese, Charles Woodson, Tai Streets and a young skinny backup named Tom Brady.

However, when I started attending school in Iowa City; I quickly became a diehard Hawkeye fan the minute I saw the love and passion that can be found from the faithful in Kinnick Stadium.

My sports memories and live experiences have been very exciting as I have been lucky to be as some very important events in sports.

I've been to the classic Northwestern v Michigan game in 2000 (54-51 Cats), Home Run Derby 2003, World Series 2005 Game Two (Podsednik walk off), MJ's last game at United Center as a Wizard, Mark Buehrle's perfect game, Iowa beating Penn State on a game winning FG (2008), and finally the Orange Bowl victory in 2010 as Iowa beat Georgia Tech.

I love to watch sports, but also love to play baseball, basketball and football.

I have been a DJ for KRUI in Iowa City and have worked in sports writing for over five years.

My first article written on Bleacher Report was featured on ChicagoBuzztap.com and NHL.com

I am a featured columnist for the World Champion Chicago Blackhawks as well as for College Football

My tweets are the best tweets. Only behind Bill Simmons and Darren Rovell. After them all you got is me.
