My name is Adam Obringer and I received my bachelor’s degree from Slippery Rock University in Sport Management in 2014. I recently graduated from DePaul in June with a master’s degree in New Media Studies. I joined the Side-Out team after spending time at DePaul University, the ASUN Conference and Xavier University in athletics communications over the last three and a half years.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but I spent time in Cincinnati, OH, Macon, GA and Chicago, IL over the last three and a half years.
I covered volleyball at DePaul for two years as its sports information director and have spent over five years working volleyball events doing radio broadcast play-by-play and producing live statistics.
My main areas of work will be handling content with all of our social media accounts and writing for the Side-Out blog.
I was a butcher at a local grocery store in my hometown throughout high school and college.
I play old video games and try to complete them in record times, known as speedrunning.
During my wedding reception last year, there was a block of time where everyone was introduced and had to come out to a song and dance. It was a blast to do with everyone, including the parents, and right afterwards was our first dance.
