I grew up in a soccer house. Dad played in college and coached the local high school team and made time to coach my friends and me too. My pathway is unique as I spent my first 12 years in a small town without a lot of soccer opportunities. Eventually I had to travel 3 hours round trip 4 or 5 times a week for training and games. At 14 years of age I spent six months in Barcelona, Spain at TOVO academy. That expanded my understanding of the game and put me on track to reach higher. After the last two years at Barca Academy in Arizona playing in the MLS Next league I know I'm ready to reach even higher. I will spend my senior year with Phoenix Rising. I'm a gym rat and work on my game year round. I'll play anywhere I can help my team. I'm comfortable in the middle of the field whether it be the midfield or on the back line. I'm glad to do the dirty work and use my ability to make others around me better. I'm always in a growth mindset and I think that's what has gotten me this far. I want to be better today than I was yesterday.....same plan for tomorrow.
