1.) When did you first start playing lacrosse?

I started in 1st grade.


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

It is such a prestigious school, with a beautiful campus and great social atmosphere with a great marketing program. Also, almost everyone in my family went here so I’ve kind of been a Spartan my whole life.


3.) Why did you choose your current major?

I felt I could really make a difference with a marketing and product development degree because I feel products have such a huge impact on people’s day to day lives. I have been around the product development process, as it is what my dad does, and have always been really passionate about it.


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

It means having the honor to represent such an amazing school and program by doing the thing you love most in the world. It’s pretty amazing.


5.) What’s your favorite lacrosse memory?

Winning the state championship my sophomore year of high school.


6.) If you could be any cartoon character, who would it be?

Probably Bugs Bunny, he always gets away from trouble, like he’s one step ahead of everyone else.


7.) What's your favorite kind of music? (Genre/Artist/Songs)

I listen to all kinds of music, except country. Depends what I’m in the mood for that day. Could be Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, Coldplay, the Chainsmokers, or Logic. I have been listening to those artists a lot lately.


8.) Do you have any pre-game rituals/superstitions?

I do. Goalies have a lot of stereotypes about being superstitious I feel like and I am no exception. I do the same juggling routine before every game, eat the same pregame snack, listen to the same playlist, and a few other things.


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

My favorite hobby is fishing.
