Michael Barnes

My name is Michael (Mikey) Barnes, born and raised in Falls Church,
VA, just 15 minutes outside of our nations capital. Growing up I
always had a passion for sports, but once I realized I wasn't going to
make it big in playing sports, I decided to pursue writing about them.
I attended the University of Mary Washington where I studied
journalism and I served as a member of nearly 15 different
organizations notably; sports editor of the University paper,
President of the Club Basketball program, executive member of student
run "hype quad" club, emcee for basketball and swim programs, as well
as orientation leader on top of a number of other organizations. An
avid Duke basketball and DC sports fan, I have continued my
journalistic endeavors following graduation. I currently served as a
contractor with a private contracting company with the Department of
State during the week and a bartender at a restaurant in Stafford, VA
on the weekend.
