I am a senior sports media major at Oklahoma State University. Although I have become proficient in a multimedia world, my goal is to become a sports talk radio host and personality. As a contributing writer for cowboysrideforfree.com and varsitypreps.com, my goal has evolved into constantly look for new opportunities to gain experience. Taking small websites and helping them build an audience is special to me. I am an award winning amateur sports writer and sports columnist, but those skills can be improved and will as my experience grows. Sports are my passion and that is what drives me to work as hard every day. Being strong in social media is something that I am proud of, since it has become valuable commodity in today’s media. Part of my current job as a contributor is following every move of athletes on Twitter. Breaking news before on Twitter for the sites I work for has made me proud to be ahead of the curve. Giving people the chance to have the same passion about sports as I do is my ultimate goal in this industry. Sports have offered an escape in my life, and I want to do the same for others.
