thumbnail_IMG_15401.) When did you first start playing lacrosse?

I first started playing lacrosse in 6th grade when my best friend begged me to try it out.

2.) Why did you decide to come to Michigan State?

I wanted to come to Michigan State because I wanted to go to a Big 10 school that had a large student body. MSU checked both of those boxes and I loved the campus when I visited for the first time.

3.) What’s it like going to school far from home?

Going to school far from home has been very easy for me. MSU is a great school and the lacrosse team is like a 2nd family.

4.) What does it mean to you to play for MSU lacrosse?

To me MSU Lacrosse is a great opportunity to play a sport I love at the next level and represent a great university.

5.) What’s your favorite lacrosse memory?

My favorite lacrosse memory was playing in my last high school game with my best friends in the County Semifinals.

6.) Why did you choose your current major?

At MSU I have 2 majors which are Economics and History. I chose History because I love the subject and is a great way to get in the field of Law. I chose Economics because I am very interested in the business world.

7.) What is your dream vacation?

This past summer I went on my dream vacation which was going to Spain and Switzerland.

8.) What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Something most people don’t know about me is that I love the outdoors and I love going hiking and backpacking.

9.) If you could pick one person to be stuck in an elevator with, who would it be?

If I had to be stuck in an elevator with someone it would have to be Kobe Bryant. He is the first sports player I ever idolized and I would love to know him better.
