My name is Mark Schipper. I am a professional writer and aspiring filmmaker.
At the moment I am working on a college football book that combines our contemporary cultural moment with American history, personal memoir, and an odyssey across the country. The fascinating, monstrous, and inspirational story of the United States is inseparable from that of college football's, a game whose sound and fury I've been an exuberant camp follower and acolyte of—almost as though it were a kind of religion—since I was a small child just old enough to pick up the mystic chords of memory sounding from campuses across the country each autumn.
If you have a project to work on, or something you think I can add value to, do not hesitate to reach out and contact me. I am looking to network and help people improve their projects an endeavors anywhere I can."
July, 2020. WGN Radio and Matt Bubala had me on twice to talk about Feria de San Fermin in Pamplona, better known in the United States as the Running of the Bulls.
