Why did you decide to join Cazenovia College Athletics?
I decided to join Cazenovia College Athletics because of the small feel of the school. The culture here is like a family and it was easy for me to adjust coming from a small high school.

Who is your biggest influence in your life, and why?
My biggest influence in my life is my mom and dad. They taught me the importance of work ethic and push me to be the best version of myself that I can be.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In 10 years, I see myself working in the sports industry to give back to the sport that shaped me into the person I am today.

What is your most memorable moment here at Cazenovia College?
My most memorable experience at Cazenovia College was when we beat Bryant and Stratton College in overtime. That got social media exposure from all over the country.

If you were to meet a professional athlete, who would it be and why?
If I were to meet a professional athlete, it would be Russell Westbrook. His heart pumps differently than everyone else’s and he motivates me to play every play like it’s my last.

What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Some of my favorite hobbies are to play Fortnite and listen to music.

When did you start playing this sport, and was it something that changed your life?
I started playing basketball when I was 5 years old and it is something that definitely changed my life. I would not be the same without basketball. It has taught me that nothing is handed to you and the work you put into something is what you will get out of it.

How would you describe yourself as an athlete?
I would describe myself as an athlete that’s been over looked my whole life due to my size which has contributed to me playing with a chip on my shoulder to prove everyone wrong.
