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. Though the on-field product was never anything special, those two summers proved to be the most incredible of my life. I am unbelievably grateful for my time with both organizations.
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.
It looks like Bryan LaHair won’t get to make his first opening day start after all.
The Cubs completely revamped their entire organization when they brought in team president Theo Epstein, general manager Jed Hoyer and manager Dale Sveum.
Forte’s downfall was when he let his internal frustrations become external outbursts. The backlash from that single Tweet has painted Forte as a greedy, selfish player, discontent with the roughly 1,400% raise he was offered.
Through his first three months as Bears general manager, Phil Emery has been anything but Bears-like.

The way the NBA is today, one dynamic player isn’t enough. That’s why the Bulls need to do whatever it takes to trade for Dwight Howard.
With the Bulls trailing the Pacers 92-90 with 23 seconds to go, the MVP of the league had the ball in his hands and a chance to tie the game.
If Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau’s hush-hush approach to Luol’s Deng’s wrist injury is any indication, the small forward could be out for the foreseeable future.
Entering this season, Lucas, now 29, was a bit of an afterthought — if even that — on the Bulls’ roster. He was third on the depth chart at guard, and sights were set, as they should have been, on the return of the reigning MVP Derrick Rose.
It looks like Richard Hamilton won’t get to show off his new home to his former team.
I’ve never understood the obsession with college bowl games. Teams compete all season long, for what? A chance to win the Sugar Bowl? The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl? Or even worse — the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl?
Before we move forward and completely forget about the fiasco otherwise known as Jerry Angelo on Draft Day, let’s recap his top selections over the years.
It’s a new year now, though, and Rose is just minutes away from giving the city of Chicago its first up-close look at the reigning MVP of the league.
Gangsters belong in prison, or sleeping under some bridge, planning their next brawl against a rival gang. They certainly don’t belong on a college campus, put on a national stage because they can play basketball.
One week after introducing Theo Epstein as president of baseball operations, Chicago reunited him with his friends from Boston.
Cubs fans, it’s OK to get excited. Good things are coming. But before those things can happen, there are a few matters Epstein needs to address
While the favored names to fill Guillen’s shoes were guys like Terry Francona, Sandy Alomar Jr. and Dave Martinez, Ventura isn’t going to apologize for where he sits in the White Sox organization.
