What do you do outside of Ultimate? I am pursuing graduate school for a masters of physicians assistant.  I work full time as a medical assistant for a physicians group in Gainesville.  I am a volunteer youth leader at my church.  I sell firewood which I split by hand in what little free time I have.  I coach Ultimate at the University of North Georgia.  

Name a recent book, movie, tv show, or video game you enjoyed. Fortnite.  I am not very good, but it is a fun game

How/why did you start playing Ultimate? My first night at GCSU I saw some people throwing flicks and hammers on the quad.  I fell in love at first sight.  I played pickup and intramurals for 2 years before joining the club team at GCSU where I played for 3 years.   

What other sports did you play? I played football and tennis in high school and was recruited to play DIII football.  I was the captain of the chess club and football team my senior year of high school.  

What is your idol/mentor/inspiration and why? Jesus, he always did the right thing, regardless of how hard it was

What is your superpower -most dangerous throw, cut, defensive skill? I run hard from the moment the pull goes up, until a goal is scored.  As a result, not many people like to guard me. My college teammates nicknames me the workhorse.  

Who are your favorite athletes/teams? Atlanta falcons. JJ Watt- I appreciate how hard he works and how he uses his platform to represent something that he believes is bigger than himself. 

What would you choose as your "walk up" song? Boston - Something About You
