My name is Chris Umpierre. I spent 14 years years writing for The News-Press in Fort Myers, Fla. I spent 8 of those years writing about sports. I also covered education, real estate, growth and more.
Now that I’ve transitioned to public relations in Miami, I needed an avenue for my sports writing. Hello blog! As an L.A. native and UCLA alum, I have strong ties to the Southern California sports scene.
In this blog, I’ll write about my L.A. teams and their ongoing journey to win a championship. (Can the Dodgers win their first World Series since 1988?) I’ll also dabble in travel and other experiences in Miami. I’m a big fan of Marlins Park, American Airlines Arena, Crandon Park (Miami Open) and Hard Rock Stadium.
Thanks for reading. Have a great day!
