I have been watching and studying hockey since I was about five years old. After further studies with strategy and understanding the game, I began to analyze each team, specifically the Blackhawks, in regards to strategy and their execution of it. Hockey is my passion, and understanding strategy and variations of it is my hobby.

I have an English degree from Indiana University and love writing. When I grow up, I want to be a full time writer.

Chicago based, I love to write about hockey, movies, news and pretty much anything else. I've been to more Blackhawks games than I could count, and there hasn't been a Star Wars movie I didn't enjoy or a breaking news story I wouldn't write about.

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.

Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal.


The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
