I am a military brat, as my dad was in the Air Force for 26 years. I was born in Riverside, California and then moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado before we moved back to California and I now live in Orcutt, California, near Vandenberg Air Force Base. I love sports, and have loved sports all of my life. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2007, and soon after I decided I wanted to be a journalist because I could no longer join the military. Writing has always come easy to me, and I hope to someday be a professional sports journalist. You can visit some of my free lance blogs that I have posted on Twitter. Follow me at #dilldawg, where I post all my blogs. I hope that through my writing I can express my love for sports to the world. I strive to be a very strong journalist, but to also be as unbiased as possible in a world filled with biased media.
