How did you decide that you wanted to go to Menlo College?
During my orientation professor Leong was giving a lecture and he seemed knowledgeable and passionate about the material. Also, I was offered an opportunity to play basketball and I couldn’t pass that opportunity up.

How did you get into your sport?
I played football and basketball in high school and picked up track to keep in shape during my off season. Was not my favorite sport at the time, but it was my strongest.

What is your favorite part about being a student athlete?
Being able to represent Menlo College by preforming at a high level both in the class room and on the track.

When do you feel most alive?
When I am able to hang out with my family and friends without stressing over the obligations in my life.

If you were to get a tattoo right now, what would it be and where?
A cross sitting on clouds and a bar or two of cat’s in the cradle circling/wrapping around the cross. On the cross would be my dad’s name and the date he died. I would either get it in the middle of my back or middle of my chest.
