Journey of a Young Kid's DREAM: 

Five Years of VC

 

ABOUT ME

JOURNALIST. PODCASTER. SPEAKER. 

As a young high school student, I decided to pursue a dream during my freshman year in high school. I combined my love for writing and sports by starting my own website, Vikings Corner. I wanted to gain experience at a young age because I had one vision in mind: to work in sports. I poured all my young energy, passion and confidence into this goal. I reached out to mentors, conducted informational meetings and focused on growing as a writer. After about a year of running my website, people wanted more content. I made it bigger, applied for a business license and Vikings Corner grew to a level I never anticipated. The website has become one of the top Minnesota Vikings blogs currently on the web. With more than 11,700 Twitter followers and a steady readership, I have connected with passionate fans across the globe.

 

I have gained so much valuable experience, while partnering with the likes of ESPN, Priority Sports, and many others for specific projects. I also covered Vikings Training Camp and the NFL Draft every year. Vikings Corner recently turned seven years old and has become more than just a website -- it is a community. There is nothing I enjoy more than connecting with fans and teaching them about the game I love. Throughout this journey, I have spent time reaching out to coaches, reading books and studying the game to provide the best content for fans everywhere. All of the hard work has led me to many unique opportunities. In February 2018, Vikings Corner was credentialed to cover Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis. I had the opportunity to produce features and posted a game story after the world's biggest sporting event. In between, I've covered hundreds of NFL and college sporting events, including the NCAA Basketball Tournament and Final Four.

 

I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota's Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication with a degree in professional journalism. Attending the University of Minnesota provided me with many opportunities to continue gaining experience. I covered Minnesota Golden Gopher football and men’s basketball for Skor North (1500ESPN) and GopherHole.com. I am responsible for providing written content and analysis of the Gopher football team across Hubbard Broadcasting digital platforms. This includes: features, film reviews, news articles and podcasts. It has been so rewarding to cover a Big Ten program in one of the best athletic conferences in the country. Not only that, but in high school, I also produced weekly fantasy football rankings for my mentor, Paul Charchian, at LeagueSafe.com

 

In the future, I hope to continue sharing stories with the world. There is nothing more rewarding than crafting a valuable profile on an athlete, coach, or fan. At 23 years old, I have written feature stories, covered events and walked the sidelines during many high-profile games. I have done things I never imagined were possible at my age. I continue to work hard at developing my craft, while learning new ways to create compelling content across media platforms. Football has been a passion of mine since elementary school. From serving as a ball boy for eight years in elementary and middle school, to spending hundreds of hours watching film and practices, I have developed a burning desire for this game. I know I want to make it a career in the future. 

I’m thankful to my mentors and family who have believed in me over the years. More importantly, I can't thank all of the readers enough for their continued support. Your words of encouragement mean more than you know. This is only the beginning of my journey and I can't wait to see where my vision takes me.
