I am a currently a Junior at the University of Connecticut. Growing up in Connecticut , soccer has never been at the fore-front of peoples minds, and I am looking to change that. I want to eventually pursue a career for writing for a professional soccer team, preferably Manchester United, however I am happy enough with just seeing where my talents can take me.

I follow many leagues worldwide from the up and coming MLS, the battle between Real Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga, to the Barclays Premier League. My passion besides playing soccer throughout my life, has been watching every game possible and wanting to know the latest news first.
