I was born and raised in the mitten. I’m a class of 2012 Michigan grad with a degree in Screen Arts and Cultures. Before moving to Bristol, I interned for an economic development non-profit that helped attract businesses to Ann Arbor, called Ann Arbor SPARK. While in school, I worked my way from staff photographer to senior photo editor at the Michigan Daily where I fell in love with sports. I’m a fan of all things Detroit and Michigan and I will forever bleed maize and blue.

ESPN golf analyst Andy North visited the ESPN campus recently in preparation for coverage of the Masters Tournament, which today will include the network’s Par 3 Contest (3 p.m. ET) followed by SportsCenter at the Masters (ESPN, 5 p.m.).
North, who is in his 22nd year as an ESPN analyst, took the time to answer some questions, including what he thinks spectators should look for at Augusta National, his memories of his first time in the event and what a typical day covering golf for ESPN is like.
ESPN will televise the first and second rounds of the Masters on Thursday and Friday (3 p.m. each day).

That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Ann Arbor, Mich. It’s the number of air miles that separate me from the town where I used to study at the University of Michigan and cover the Wolverines as a photographer for the school paper. I started shooting on my 19th birthday in January 2009.
I know that number from my boarding pass from Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn. to Detroit Metro Airport. In March, I was returning to the Michigan campus for the first time since starting at ESPN a month earlier to watch the team play against Michigan State. Lucky for me, they didn’t burn a couch this night. continue reading…
