Rising 4th-year student at the University of Virginia, who has a strong passion for the sports industry. I have been a sports journalist for the past two years, covering South Florida professional teams such as the Heat, Dolphins, and Marlins as well as the University of Virginia football and basketball teams. I produce content on hot topics in the sports realm such as the impact of using weighted balls for a pitcher and whether using a leg kick in your swing can help produce power. I am currently a growth/marketing interning at Coachtube.com, #1 sports marketplace for instructional videos, where my ultimate objective is to help both coaches and athletes improve their skill sets and knowledge of the respective sports they teach/participate in.
