My journey from there to now
My passions for sports and video games started when I was 4 years old. I remember that Christmas my father gifted my brother and I our first video game console, the Nintendo. When I wasn’t in school or had all my chores done, I would spend hours playing Super Mario, Ninja Turtles, Contra, and many other NES classics. Since then, I have owned at least one console from every generation with the recent Xbox Series X that I’m gaming on. However, if I wasn’t playing Mortal Kombat, I was most likely watching sports. Again, thanks to my father, exposure to sports began young. But my passion for it did not begin until attending my first high school football game as a freshman. The passion from the fans and excitement hooked me. It also helped that my high school had great athletics. Combining my passions enables me to create fun and unique content across all mediums and social media for people with similar passions and interests to enjoy.
Currently, I am a Multiplatform Editor at the Los Angeles Times in the sports department. I earned my Master of Arts in Mass Communication specializing in Social Media at the University of Florida in December 2021. I also have a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast & Digital Journalism from the University of Southern California and a Master of Professional Studies in Sports Industry Management from Georgetown University. I just need that video game degree, right?
