What do you do outside of ultimate? I'm teaching myself to photosynthesize. So far I haven't made the big breakthrough but I think I'm getting pretty close. Also I've been experimenting with some electrode shock therapy to change my favorite color to purple.....4th Year Ecology Undergrad at UGA; Aspiring beekeeper. "If you love what you do then you never work a day in your life." But yeah, I'm currently unemployed.

Name a recent book, movie, tv show, or video game you enjoyed. I recently got my hands on a copy of "Where's Waldo" written in braille. Really exhilarating stuff. 

How/why did you start playing Ultimate? I was headhunted by Jojah ultimate and stolen from the Ballroom dance group at UGA in 2016. I am entering my 3rd Spring Ultimate season

What other sports did you play? My childhood up through high school was spent playing baseball, but a "serious" athlete? mm no I wouldn't consider myself to be a serious anything. I'm rediscovering my affinity for badminton recently, but I'd have to say that ultimate is firmly number 1 in my heart. 

What player is your idol/mentor/inspiration and why? Someday I want to be able to throw turnovers in as many ways as Parker Bray. But seriously, he's been a great guy to learn from during the last couple years on Jojah. Also I'll throw a shout out to George Summers for his influence and leadership in my fledgling days as an ultimate player. 

What is your your superpower -most dangerous throw, cut, defensive skill? I am a true believer in Matt Knowles' leg swinging butt first approach to dumping and resetting the disc but my passion is D Line. I love getting blocks and that's what I'm here to do.  

What is your claim to fame? Racking up hockey assists by getting the disc to Parker Bray in power position

Who are your favorite athletes/teams? Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Braves. Keep it close to home. As for my favorite athletes, I appreciate all athletes on an individual level but I only wear one jersey and it's my own.  

What would you choose as your "walk up" song? 

Do you have a favorite bad joke? One guy walked into a bar. The next guy ducked.
