I am originally from Wichita, KS and I lived there until I was 9. While residing there I developed a love for the Wichita State University Shockers and a hatred for all things related to the KU Jayhawks and K-State Wildcats. I have always been a huge fan of Chicago sports teams (Bears, Cubs, Bulls, Blackhawks). At age 9 I moved with my family to Sterling, IL where I developed an interest in the University of Illinois Fighting Illini basketball team along with the Chicago Fire and other local teams. I have had the opportunity to attend numerous Cubs games along with a few Bulls, Bears, and Blackhawks games. After graduating from high school I began college at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, IN and that is where I am currently living and studying.
