What brought you to Menlo College?
After two years at Auburn University at Montgomery and their transfer to the D2 level, I decided to leave the school to maintain a high educational and athletic level.

Who is your role model, and why?
I believe that you always are going to meet special people in your life which show you abilities or a character you really admire. At this moment I would chose a friend of mine from the soccer team. Efrain Bonilla works hard on and off the field and is a role model for all athletes here at Menlo College. 

Describe one of your favorite moments while playing your sport at Menlo College.
Definitely the game against Westmont to win the GSAC Tournament 2016. 

Do you have any pregame rituals? If so, what are they?
I just love to listen to music that relaxes me before the game and makes me Bailando (Dance).

If you were to get a tattoo right now, what would it be and where would you put it?
I already have a whole sleeve full of tattoos related to my family. If I would get another it would be on my neck of the longitude and latitude lines of a place that means a lot to me.
