Over the past year, I have acquainted myself with FanGraphs, making a point to expanding my knowledge of the sport with the successful application of advanced metrics and player analysis. My contributions for Cubbies Crib helped boost the site to No. 2 in annual traffic amongst all Fansided MLB sites with over 7 million views in 2017.
For Aug. 2017, I was named Writer of the Month with 18 articles, a high among writers, and third overall for the site. In Jan. 2018, I was named 2017 Writer of the Year, as decided by my editors, Jacob Misener, and Nicholas Blazek.
In February 2018 I took on a new opportunity with Cubs Insider. This website is all about smart analysis and dissecting Chicago Cubs baseball with a specific flavor in mind. Editor Evan Altman provided the type of challenge I was seeking, both as a writer for Cubs baseball and the type of content and tone that the website thrives on.
