👋🏼

Hi, I’m Kane.
I’m a sports journalist
and digital designer.

I’m currently developing Fightify – a combat sports digital agency – while studying a masters degree in digital marketing. I’m passionate about telling athletes’ personal stories away from the action and creating data-driven content in football and mixed martial arts.

I have eight years of experience writing for print and web publications and hold a first-class honours degree in Sports Journalism. I’ve worked with semi-professional and professional football clubs in social media, content creation and photography.

While I primarily produce football and mixed martial arts content, I also have keen interests in basketball, boxing and American football. I've previously covered accredited live events at the Emirates Arena and the Madejski Stadium.

I'm also certified in web development by Google and Webflow and will soon begin a Sports Performance Analytics course from the University of Michigan.
