Welcome to my personal website.
I am currently an intern at CNN Sports in Atlanta where I am helping to write and produce stories for various CNN platforms and for CNN.com. At CNN, I am contributing original enterprise reporting features for CNN.com and helping gather editorial for both CNN digital and television platforms. In May of 2018, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with honors in both journalism and history.
Previously, I was the sports editor and men’s basketball beat writer at the Daily Cardinal, UW-Madison’s premier independent student newspaper. I love to write human-interest stories that go beyond the box score. At the Daily Cardinal, I did just that while also covering events like the NCAA basketball tournament, Milwaukee Bucks training camp and the Big Ten football championship.
I was also a fellow at the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Journalism Ethics, where I wrote stories about journalism practices and ethics by interviewing practicing journalists and academics. I have also written for various sports blogs such as BlueManHoop.com, Bustasports.com, and my personal website, Oldfashioned3.sportsblog.com
At Wisconsin, I was awarded the James L. Baughman Undergraduate Excellence Award given to graduating journalism school seniors. I was also awarded the Joseph Sicherman Award Scholarship recognizing students concentrating on editorial journalism and the Steven Mark Wiltgen and Betty J Frazier Scholarship recognizing students pursuing sports journalism.
