I’m a huge fan of sports, education and communication. I’ve worked in all those fields – I started my communications career as a PR intern with the 2010 ArenaBowl Champion Spokane Shock. Fresh off the end of the AFL season in August, I joined Eastern Washington University’s student paper, The Easterner, to cover sports. The first team I covered was the 2010-11 NCAA Division I National Champion EWU Eagles football team.
It hasn’t been as easy for anyone I’ve covered since, but I gained experience working for the academic side of an Ivy League school (Cornell University’s College of Arts and Sciences) and I was the Director of Communications for the fledgling Portland Thunder in 2014. I have lots of experience with sports on every level – as a fan, participant, and front office worker. I’ve even coached a bit.
I started this blog for fun. Sports are supposed to be an outlet where we’re free to not take things as seriously as we take the rest of our lives. I need to practice and refine my writing, graphic skills, and multimedia editing abilities and show that I can manage yet another website that I am responsible for. I take pride in creating connections between things that are seemingly unrelated. Sometimes it makes me look like a loon, but take my more outlandish ideas with a grain of salt.
Thank you for reading my blog; it means a lot to me to know someone is interested in the things I’m saying. Hopefully you gain as much from the experience as I’m trying to.
