Unfortunately I've grown up in Virginia my whole life. If I had a choice I would've grown up in either Minnesota or anywhere in Canada. I love the sport of hockey with every fiber of my being, and my favorite team is the Washington Capitals. I also like the Washington Redskins, Baltimore Orioles, Georgetown Hoyas, and if I watch soccer it would be Manchester United. Trust me, I love the Caps, but if you put anything hockey in front of me I'll take it handsdown. I've played and watched hockey ever since I was 6 years old. I attended Westfield High School and played center for their hockey team ever since I was in elementarty school. Also, while at Westfield I started getting into sports writing for the paper in which I became Assistant Sports Editor and wrote Ice Hockey, Tennis, Lacrosse, Soccer, Baseball, and Field Hockey. I've always had a very broad knowledge of all sports, but hockey being my favorite I know a plethora about it. Wanting to be a journalist, I pursued it in college while attending Liberty University. In my very first semester, I started as a Sports Writer for the Champion Newspaper there writing Men's and Women's Hockey, Football, and Soccer. While trying to further progress my journalistic career, I took on two new tasks, Public Address announcer then both the Play by Play and Color Commentator for the radio broadcasts of the hockey games. For a year I did that and changed my major to that. I still loved to write, so I continued to do so. I dropped out during my second year and am working for now. My life has taken many turns but it's treated me well no matter what. I still play hockey, am picking the writing back up, and watching and attending as many Capitals games as I can. My biggest thanks for everything would have to be HOCKEY and the Caps!
