Co-Host of the Mike n Will Show. Born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I always did like sports and writing. Growing up in Chicago I kind of developed that love for the Chicago sports teams. I decided to mix two passions, my love and knowledge for sports with my passion for writing. I've written for many Chicago sports sites and have the articles and stuff to prove it. Since I am still finishing high school, I have all the time in the world to hone my skills and become a greater writer.
