About

I most recently was a sports reporter for the Everett Herald, the fifth-largest daily newspaper in Washington state. I covered the prep sports beat in Snohomish County and other events as needed, such as University of Washington football games. I'm exploring other opportunities to write about sports, whether that be in journalism or another field.

Experience


Prep sports reporter

Everett Herald
Oct 2016 - Apr 2020
I covered a prep sports beat that included more than 25 high schools. My work included feature stories, game stories, sports news stories, enterprise stories, video highlights and more. I also helped in other areas, such as UW football game coverage. I earned first-place and second-place awards in the 2019 SPJ Northwest regional contest.

Sports reporter

Lynden Tribune
Sep 2014 - Oct 2016
As a one-man sports department, I provided thorough prep sports coverage of five local high schools for an award-winning weekly newspaper in Washington state. I was responsible for all aspects of the sports section -- writing, photography and page layout. I also maintained the sports portion of the website and ran the sports social media accounts.

College desk writer

The Associated Press
Aug 2013 - Mar 2014
I wrote 150-word Division I college football and college basketball game recaps that were published by the AP and numerous other news services, including ESPN.com. Our group of part-time writers in Spokane was responsible for writing recaps of nearly every D-I football and basketball game across the country that wasn't staffed by the AP.

Sports clerk

I worked part-time on the newspaper's sports desk, where I answered phone calls from coaches and entered high school and college box scores.

Online content intern

710 ESPN Seattle
May 2012 - Aug 2013
I interned for two summers under then-710Sports.com editor Brady Henderson, who now covers the Seattle Seahawks for ESPN. I wrote articles, podcast summaries and headlines for the radio station's website. I also helped manage the website by linking audio, articles and photos.

Education


Gonzaga University

Journalism - Bachelor's
Sep 2010 - May 2014
I graduated from Gonzaga University with a bachelor's degree in journalism. I also received minors in economics and broadcast studies.
