About Me

I’ve been writing since my time as an undergradute at George Mason University, located in the outskirts of Washington D.C. After earning a degree in Journalism and interning at numerous publications, I began freelancing for USA Today among other outlets, mostly covering one of my favorite sports growing up — boxing.

I’ve always been fascinated by people, subjects and issues and thrive on the opportunity to delve into a subject and profile it. Covering HBO boxing matches regularly on deadline, I know just how important it is to meet each and every time-crunch. When I’m writing on press row with around 30 minutes to file to my editor, I’m hoping that I can condense a sporting event into an enjoyable, compelling and accurate account of the action.

I take reporting very seriously and strive to always find the facts and write about them fairly and accurately.

Currently, I work for NFL Media Group as a Digital Content Editor on the news desk. I also regularly contribute to the Around The League blog.

I hope everyone enjoys the site.

- Mike
