I am 24 years old and just recently graduated from James Madison University with a BA degree in journalism. I currently reside in Reston, VA and am working as a server at the Silver Diner while searching for a job in the sports writing/media industry.
I am a very ambitious and driven person. I am a very hard-worker and I make sure that I complete every task with great precision and accuracy. I work well with others and I would be a great addition to your sports team. I multi-task very well, am very creative and am detail-oriented. I freelanced and wrote feature articles for Pro Sports Blogging (www.prosportsblogging.com) and for the Birds Watcher (www.birdswatcher.com). I have become very familiar with these new social media tools and I think they will create a huge impact on the future sports world. I am familiar with editing videos, posting blogs and creating charts/graphics for online use. I think I can add a level of sophistication and drive to your sports department.
I completed an internship in the sports department for WTTG Fox 5 in Washington, D.C. over the summer in 2010 and I enjoyed every minute of it from watching sports to being in the field with the sports team. I learned an immense amount of valuable information applicable to my future career goals and I can definitely use my writing/editing/production skills to better your sports department.
Thanks for becoming a fan! As a huge Orioles fan that doesn't live near Baltimore anymore it's great to read your articles. Look forward to reading more in the future.
Thanks for becoming a fan, Alexander! Your baseball coverage is terrific, especially your recent Orioles articles. A good friend of mine is a huge Baltimore fan and this year was like his dream come true before falling off the in the playoffs, but regardless, they're a team with a lot of promise. It looks like you have a great deal of experience in journalism and media, how are you liking B/R so far? If you ever have any questions or suggestions about the site, please don't hesitate to contact me.
I see you just became an Orioles Community leader, congradulations(that spelling right there is point A as to why I don't write)
Read your article, "Atlanta Braves will win the National League East in 2012". What it should be called is, "Alexander Van Rees knows nothing about baseball". I agree with Shaz, stop being the worst writer on Bleacher Report and go back to being the worst waiter at Olive Garden.
You are a terrible writer. Don't write any more articles about football when you obviously do not know what you are talking about. Stick with what you know. No I am not talking about writing about baseball. I'm talking about serving dinners. Lemme get a gefilte fish bro.
