I am seeking a career in sports reporting. Ideally I would like to work for a sports magazine and be writing feature stories on athletes. With that being said, I am not against beat writing for a newspaper. I believe following a team and writing about them on a consistent basis is something I am very strong in and could to effectively at the professional level.
I am the head sports editor for my college’s student run newspaper Cardinal Points and have recently been hired as a freelance sports reporter for the local paper The Press Republican. I have experience in both beat coverage as well as feature story writing in a newspaper setting. I also have experience in page design as well as copy editing.
I am a hard worker who learns very quickly and have climbed the ranks and executed efficiently in any job I have ever done. Sports have always been my life and I think being a sports reporter is the perfect way to make a living off both my passions, writing and sports.
