A 2003 Graduate of the University of Notre Dame, I have always had a passion for sports. At Notre Dame, I worked in the Sports Information Office under John Heisler and Bernie Cafarelli. From there, I returned to Memphis for a couple of years of Grad School where I also worked for the Memphis Tigers, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds.

Now, I practice law in Pittsburgh after living four years in Atlanta. More importantly, I'm a passionate writer for Bleacher Report participating in the remarkable Bleacher Report writing internship. I love Notre Dame and the University of Memphis, but appreciate the dynamics of all sports. Good luck to all and remember that despite all of our athletic differences, we're all American. Go Irish!

    Hahaha what's up Derek, yeah I did say Miami would beat KC didn't I? But if you read my story with NFL picks from last week, I went 4-1 (with that KC game being my only loss)!

    You're welcome! Glad to be able to help.

    And, truth be told, I enjoyed the snow—my girlfriend and I ran outside and excitedly took pictures, despite probably looking like a couple of idiot Californians.
