When Stiletto Sports began in 2008, it consisted of just one girl set out to change the sports writing world, one blog post at a time. Now, it’s becoming a whole network for other sports chicks! Er, and male sports writers who aren’t all ESPN-analyst-wannabees!

I wanted to start the website years ago because I thought I was always the only girl who loved sports and video games. Once I discovered the internet, I realized there was a network of girls who were just like me and were seeking representation. I have always been told that I am the “girliest tomboy” you have ever met but I know I am not alone. I find a lot of girls grew up either playing with Barbie™ dolls and makeup and never knowing sports and video games or grew up playing sports and video games and never learning how to put on makeup. At GuysGirl.com, we do make-up & sports; barbies & video games!

Let’s face it, NASCAR has a bad rep. Some people associate the sport with beer drinking, pot bellied rednecks. I once thought this about the sport as well. A few years ago, I was forced into the sport and I today, I am addicted. I am a fashionista with a marketing background. Voila the birth of nascarfashionistas. If you don’t believe me, check out my amex bill or my closets Cheers Ya’ll.

My first live sporting event was when I went to a Detroit Red Wings game when I was 8 years old and I’ve been hooked ever since. But football is my real true love! I have been to the Chicago Bears Training Camp every year for the last 5 years.
Along with my love with sports I also have a passion for writing. I’m currently sophomore in college in South Florida. I’m majoring in Mass Communications/Journalism with dreams of becoming a sports writer for the Chicago Bears. Every season I put together a 30 page magazine called Bears Beat for my friends and family from my own unique voice and P.O.V. I find it a blessing that I am working towards a career that I am so passionate about that at the end of the day it’s not really work at all!

Favorite Sports (in order): Baseball, Baseball, Baseball, Baseball. And chili. I mean, football. Well, I think I do actually enjoy the beloved pasttime of eating chili every Sunday in the fall more than actually watching the football games….
Mike is our behind the scenes guy. He runs the back end of Stiletto Sports and answers calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for whatever random thing I decide to call him about. But he is also the go-to guy for all things baseball and especially, all things Yankees. You’ll see him posting a lot from Feb-Sept covering the ins and outs of baseball so I don’t have to! One day, when he doesn’t have 18 million things to do on his teux-deux list, he will write his own bio here!
