About me

An easy going and a professional 31 years old sports journalist. I have been in the media for quite a long time now but working in sports definitely tops them all for me. Very passionate about a lot of sports and enjoy following most of them. I'm also very opened about trying a new field or experiences in life. Not usually that good when it comes to talking about myself, however, people who know me would definitely mention a lot of positive notes :)
