Editorial Intern, ESPNChicago.com

My reporting style is similar to my attitude toward filling out medical history forms: If I’m going to add an entry, I might as well make it count.

Part of three-person daytime editorial team running Chicago’s most visited sports site. Interviewed singer Jon Fratelli for feature on United Center anthem during Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup run. Published prep sports stories.

At 22, I traveled to Germany for a year abroad and wound up bedridden for eight days in a Munich hospital infected with the E. Coli bacteria.

Embarrassed myself in one-on-one matchup with star guard for feature story during season as beat writer covering University of Missouri men’s basketball team. Also, headline writer, fact checker and last set of eyes for daily paper serving city of 113,000.

The list includes a few more notable bullet points. But the same ambition and fearlessness is also found in my reporting.

Editorial Intern, RedEye

As my clips demonstrate, I take routine meeting stories about water rates and turn them into watchdog reports on a city’s 15-year run deflecting water bills to residents; or use a discussion about a dilapidated police station as a segue to a story about a $175,000 architectural study that city administrators withheld from the City Council; or follow a tip from a resident fed up with the lack of support for a public library until it becomes a report exposing the city’s six-year stretch of underfunding the library, by as much as $250,000 per year.

I’ve never been any good at doing things half- heartedly, and I approach stories with the same determination as deep flies to right field.
