About

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.

    Thanks again!

    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.
