Sports has been my life since I can remember. Watching, listening, attending is where I started. While in high school, I joined the local newspaper sports staff as a part-time writer. Less than a year later, I was promoted to one of the three full-time positions on staff.
I remained in that profession for almost seven years before shifting to a digital-based job. That only lasted for a few years before the itch to cover sports came back. That, and having our first child.
I returned to newspaper writing and also found a new calling: MMA. The thrill of not knowing what might happen each time two athletes step inside the cage excited me.
I continue to write for both the newspaper and a host of MMA sites, having done so for the past several years. I've found MMA fighters are great to get work with in terms of discussing their fights, their futures and their goals. In a short amount of time, I've met some incredible people and hope to continue on this journey for years to come.
Thanks for the edit! Much appreciated! Thanks for the support.
