My Role

I cover the Chicago Bulls.
My Biography

An Evanston native, I joined the Tribune's high school sports coverage in 1990 after playing Division III basketball at Beloit College. I covered the Bulls' second three-peat from 1996-98 for both the Chicago Tribune and www.chicagotribune.com. After two seasons covering the Blackhawks and NHL, I've been back on the Bulls full-time since 2000, save for a one-season detour covering the Bears in 2005.
