About

I'm a senior at the University of Oklahoma, majoring in news-editorial journalism with an emphasis on sports writing/editing. I spent three years at my dream school, the University of Nebraska, before transferring back "home" to Oklahoma. Though I'm now getting a Sooner education, I'll always be a Husker at heart.

I spent the summer with The Oklahoman as a sports intern. The Oklahoman is my dream job, and I'd like to hopefully land a job with them someday and help the paper garner national prestige. It would also be awesome if I got big enough to be a featured writer for ESPN, like the guys on Around the Horn.

I'm also a community leader and featured columnist for Nebraska football.

{{"SportMonk," you ask?}}
Westboro Baptist protested at Nebraska games during the 2008 season, condemning the state with claims that Memorial Stadium is a temple for the worship of its gods, the Huskers. This caused me to think: If sports is my religion and athletes are my gods, as a sports writer I must be a monk of sport.
