Writer, sports journalist, and bad skateboarder

Location icon United States

Hi! My name is Sydney Kuntz. I'm a freelance writer and photographer. I'm interested in using interactive media to tell diverse stories. While most of my experience is in sports writing and reporting, I'm also very interested in creating stories with positive and nuanced LGBTQ+ representation.

Although I was born and raised in a small town in Western New York, I now live in Washington, DC, where I study journalism at American University and tend to root for the Washington Capitals.

I currently write about women's ice hockey for The Ice Garden and do freelance work while I finish up my BA.
