Hello, my name is Paul Steeno!

I'm a second year graduate student at DePaul University pursuing a master's degree in journalism. I'm heavily involved with Good Day DePaul, I'm the beat writer for the DePaul men's basketball team for the DePaulia, I freelance for SB Nation and the Daily Herald, and last summer I completed an awesome internship as a communications intern for the Picking Me Foundation (a nonprofit organization spreading awareness on skin-picking disorder).

When I'm not doing journalism stuff, I enjoy pretending I'm good at running and biking, hanging out with friends and getting way too emotionally invested watching sports. The Sandlot and Grown Ups 2 were the two best movies ever made. Avril Lavigne is the best musical artist. That is all.

I look forward to working with everybody this year!
