Why did you choose Yale: Primarily the coaches, who were supportive of me playing both sports, squash and lacrosse. But honestly, Yale picked me, because no one else was, and I'm thankful for that.
Why did you start playing squash: My oldest friend, George Miller and his father introduced it to me in 1st grade. I really enjoyed it and have continued to play since.
What is your favourite squash moment?: My favorite team moment is beating Princeton 5-4 my freshman year despite that I lost a 2 hour 15 minute match. The win pretty much solidified an Ivy League Championship. My favorite individual moment is winning the consolation draw from the collegiate individual tournament my sophomore year in which I defeated some well respected players and earning 2nd team All-American.
