I was born and raised in Vancouver, and am a long time fan of the Canucks. I came across Bleacher Report in October of 2011, and applied as a writer. On February 13, 2012, I was accepted as a Featured Columnist, specializing in NHL and the Vancouver Canucks. As time goes on, I hope to become a columnist for PGA and MMA as well.
I'm currently completing a BBA in Marketing Communications in Victoria, BC, and hold a degree in Business Management and Professional Golf Management. When I complete my studies, I will either look for work in sports journalism or sports marketing, and if that fails I may look into continuing education.

care for a fan add?
can you start doing articles on the canucks farm team the Chicago wolves, like what Al Daniel is doing with the providence bruins? its something to write about and i am curious about how the wolves are doing. if thats possible and if you have enough time on your hands that would be cool. if not its no biggie. thanks
No problem. Great article. I'll be referencing it whenever I can finally do a NHL fantasy draft!
Riley, I admittedly hate the Canucks but you are a great writer. Your articles are not overly optimistic nor pessimistic, just realistic. I am not really qualified to judge past a reader's perspective but I can see you going far in the journalism business. Keep it up.
