Born and raised in the sunny side of Southern California, I graduated from UC Irvine in 2012 with a degree in Literary Journalism. Currently an aspiring writer who loves to share a couple blurbs about the beautiful game. I'm a proud Soccer enthusiast and Jesus follower. I've been a keen supporter of Manchester United, the US National Team, and most importantly the South Korea National Team.
I am an undergraduate student currently majoring in history and literary journalism at University of California, Irvine. Ever since 3rd grade, I started to enjoy watching soccer games and even played soccer for a while (although I was terrible). I am really looking forward to 2014 World Cup and more upcoming international events because that's where you get the most thrill out of it.
23 year old basketball writer from Dublin, Ireland who first fell in love with the game when the plucky Sacramento Kings took on the mighty Lakers... and lost! Orlando Magic fan. Favourite players are Rajon Rondo, Jeff Teague and I'm probably the biggest Kawhi Leonard fan out there!

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.
From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
