When did you start playing your sport and how did you get involved with it?
I started playing when I was 4 years old. I got into it because my parents just had me start playing as a kid and I was good.
What is your greatest athletic accomplishment?
Making first-team all-conference in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference.
What is your favorite memory of playing at Salisbury University?
Going to York in the Capital Athletic Conference playoffs last year and beating them in penalty kicks to advance to the semifinals.
Who is your biggest hero, athletically or otherwise, and why?
Probably my dad just because he is the man that I strive to be every day in the way he acts and carries himself.
What is your favorite part of being a student (not just a student-athlete) at Salisbury University?
The entire experience of college, being on my own and having to figure things out for myself. This is great preparation for the real world.
What do you like to do when you're not at practice, at a game or in class?
When I'm doing anything school related, I love to eat and then just hang out with friends in the dorms.
What are your plans after graduation?
I want to move back in to Washington, D.C., and work downtown. I love D.C. and want to stay there.
