After earning a degree in Journalism from the University of Illinois, I joined the CBS Chicago digital department in September of 2011. In addition to covering various Chicago sporting events, I also produce and edit content for CBSChicago.com and 670TheScore.com.
While in college, I spent two summers interning for MLB.com. I was placed with the Kansas City Royals during the summer of 2010 and the Chicago Cubs in 2011.

In between my internships, I worked as a stringer for the Associated Press, covering basketball and football at the University of Illinois. My love for journalism began in 2008 when — for reasons I’ll never understand — The Rock River Times allowed me to write a weekly sports column.
