Hey everyone! My name is Nicholas Filipas and I am a senior at the University of Oregon majoring in Journalism and ideally sports. I am from Portland, Ore. but have lived in both southern and northern California, Washington State and now this summer in Nashville, Tenn.
Everyone who knows me knows that I love my Portland Trail Blazers and I have my own sports blog (Boom Shakalaka!). My dream job would be to be a beat writer for the team or anywhere in the NBA. Nothing like being able to watch the NBA Finals and be paid for it. I also freelance write for sport sites such as Rip City Project and I’m currently underway at my first year with the Emerald Media Group at the UO.
