I am a die-hard sports fan. Sports have been in my life since the day I was born. My first outfit was a brand new Phoenix Cardinals shirt in 1988. I was always a borderline fan between the Seahawks and Cardinals (leaning more towards the Cards) until the new Glendale stadium was built and all the Cardinal haters became false fans. I love my alma-mater ASU Sun Devils and in turn, hate the Wildcats of Mexico. The Suns have and will always be my NBA team (even through the Sarver years). As for hockey, I've never really given it a chance, until this season...gonna try to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs since that's who my wife kind of likes (getting her to pay attention to a sport is my goal) and the Anaheim Ducks (I refuse to root for a team who calls the Staples Center.
I'm an uprooted AZ native currently implanted behind enemy lines in Los Angeles. I work behind enemy lines at UCLA Basketball (they're growing on me haha, afterall I get my paycheck from them).
I recently graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. I've worked at Sports 620 KTAR, NBC 12 Sports, ASU's "The State Press" and UCLA Basketball among other non-sports-oriented internships/jobs.
