About

I'm a pretty easy going guy who loves sports, and writing about it is my passion.

Most recently, I made appearances on Chicago Land Sports Radio, The Great Divide podcast, Cheesehead Talk and Al Jazeera America's "Consider This".

I attended Albion College ('13), where I was the play-by-play broadcaster for their men's and women's basketball events and the color commentator for their football, baseball, and softball contests for three years. During my time as a Briton, I had multiple articles featured on the NCAA's website and won the MIAA Conference's Robin Hartman Writing Award in 2012.

Additionally, I completed internships at K-105.3/WKHM ESPN Radio 1450 in Jackson, Michigan during the summer of 2011 and another for the Spartan Sports Network in East Lansing, Michigan in the fall of 2012.

Always looking forward to building my following and bringing stories to all the fans. Thanks for taking an interest!

    I hope you don't honestly believe that Michigan is going to easily beat Purdue this year. Michigan loses 43% of their scoring and a point guard that doesn't come around very often. In my opinion Robinson and McGary have lots of raw talent but neither are exactly the best at creating. They do better at getting open or taking advantage of not having the ball. Purdue only loses Byrd who only had one strength and that was shooting. So you can agree or disagree but the fact of the matter is this year Purdue is not only going to surprise people but they are going to be damn good so I wouldn't be counting them out for even a second.

    Hello,

    I run a uniform blog called InsideUnis, and I recently posted an article about why Michigan quarterbacks have started wearing orange jerseys. It has been picked up by CBS sports, Yahoo sports, and UniWatch. I'm not exactly sure who to send this article to for consideration on Bleacher Report, so I have sent a few emails out, and I hope you can help me out. Here is the link:

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Love your work. I had a cousin that played ball at Albion, I also played against them when I was playing at Davenport—wonder if you called my game.

    I really like your "MSU takes precedent" article on the Michigan page. Not only are you the only writer to have the guts to actually write that, haha, but I agree with you. Good job and I hope to read more of your articles in the future.
