WRITING

At Arizona State, I've had the opportunity to cover ASU's baseball and men's hockey teams on a beat for the Walter Cronkite Sports Network and Devils in Detail respectively. I have also written stories on ASU women's hockey and soccer for WCSN. Additionally, I've covered the Arizona Fall League for A's Farm, written about Arizona high school sports for AZPreps365 and done some freelance writing as well. I have experience writing previews, game stories and features, below you can find a few samples of my work, as swell archives of of my writing, which is updated regularly.
