I’m a senior journalism major (Comm. Studies minor) at Long Beach State that has a passion for sports. I’m an assistant sports editor for the Daily 49er where I’ll be the women’s basketball beat writer and the Dirtbags beat writer. I also write football, baseball and basketball for FantasyCouch.com, a site tailored for those interested in fantasy sports. My first opportunity to publish my writing took place in 2010, for a site called Sacramento Press, which led to an internship with the Sacramento River Cats. Since then, I haven’t slowed down. I’ve published over 160 articles online but hope to perfect my craft as a journalist as I continue to write and go to school.
I’ve been fortunate enough to get the opportunity to interview NBA players like Tim Duncan, Tyreke Evans, Baron Davis, Brandon Roy and DeMarcus Cousins while also getting the chance to interview baseball prospects that spent time in Sacramento during my internship in 2011.
