I am currently a junior at Heritage High School in Littleton, Colorado. As a determined, dedicated, focused athlete, competition comes very natural to me, it is what drives me to push hard in and out of practice.
I began swimming summer leagues at age 5, then started swimming year-round at age 13 for the University of Denver Hilltoppers. In my first year, I qualified for winter junior nationals, winning summer long-course state in both 100/200 breaststroke and was invited as 1 of 4 boys to attend the Western Zones Camp. Since then, I have continued to improve my times while continuing to qualify for summer junior nationals and was two seconds away from making Olympic Trials.
I am a very ambitious, dedicated, fast learner in all aspects of my life with a passion and dream to go to the Olympics. I strive to not only make myself better and stronger daily, but I also like to push my teammates to do the same. My focus, dedication, strong work ethics and inclusivity is what makes me a strong competitor and leader in and out of the water.
