Hi everyone! My name is Quinn Finer, and I’m a Journalism student at The University of Colorado. My focus is on sports media. I’m a Colorado native hailing from Fort Collins and I currently live in Boulder with my partner and Golden Retriever. I’m very excited to learn more about the rich culture of North Denver.
After I complete my undergrad I hope to work in sports media or athletic media relations. Whether it’s in print or on the multimedia side of the business, I’ll be content as long as I’m around athletics.
My love for sports started at a very young age. The first time I stepped into a Hockey rink I was eight years old. It wasn’t until my Freshman year of High School where I found my passion for Ultimate Frisbee.
I’m now in my fifth and final year playing for the University of Colorado’s team, Mamabird. I’ve been a captain of the team for the past three years. My teammates and I joke that we’re getting our degrees in Ultimate and this holds quite a bit of truth for me. While I’m very dedicated to my education and journalism, Ultimate is my number one passion. During the college offseason, I play for a men’s club team called Johnny Bravo. Bravo has players from all across Colorado, including Boulder, Denver, and as far as Fort Collins.
In the summer of 2019, I was selected to compete for the under-24 USA men’s team in Heidelberg Germany. This was one of the best experiences of my life. Experiencing a whole new culture and meeting tons of new people was an absolute treat. I got to build bonds and compete with 23 of the best players in College Ultimate who were formerly my rivals. We went on to go undefeated and win gold against Canada in the final.
Although sports are my main area of focus, I hope to write about a number of different topics within North Denver. I can’t wait to experience the culture of North Denver and share my experiences with all of you.
