Born and raised in Miami, FL, I have always had a passion for all South Florida sports teams. I graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in Communication with a double major in Electronic Media and Sports Administration. As an intern with the Miami Heat in the 2010-11 Season, I experienced the most anticipated and media-frenzied season of any NBA team in recent history. I am highly interested in the statistical side of sports and am motivated to share that passion with the public.
