I row with the Asheville Youth Rowing Association. I have played a variety of sports all my life, including five years of football, where I earned my JV team award for leadership. I started rowing during the off-season just to stay in shape for football, but rowing quickly became my passion and my primary sport. I am easygoing and get along well with all my teammates, but I also push myself constantly to improve, and I lead by example. I am looking for an opportunity to compete at the highest level possible.
