What do you do outside of Ultimate? I work at Coyote Logistics Carrier Sales. I connect trucking companies to large commercial customers around the USA.

Name a recent book, movie, tv show or video game you enjoyed. I've been on "Crazy, Stupid, Love" kick lately. I've watched it at least 5 times in the past month.

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

How/why did you start playing ultimate? I started playing ultimate when I was walking home from Baseball practice and saw my friends playing and I joined in on their practice. The next spring I chose not to play baseball and started playing Ultimate for Red Bank High School.

What other sports did you play? I played a little bit of everything growing up. I played Baseball in high school until my senior year and I played golf competitively starting at age 9. I played on a golf scholarship my freshman year of college. It's a tie between baseball and golf for my best sport, depends which I'm spending more time on at the moment

What is your idol/mentor/inspiration? I'm a huge Muhammad Ali fan mainly because of this quote, "I hated every minute of training, but I said, "Dont quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion"

What is your superpower? Flick pulls

Who are your favorite sports team or athletes? I don't follow other sports very often. I like watching Russell Westbrook because he just gets me super hype. I mostly just keep up with Ultimate teams and Athletes. Nethercutt is the man and I really look forward to every time I get to play him, but I can honestly say my favorite athlete is Anna Thompson from Philly AMP. Rewatching the mixed club final from this past year I think shes the best player on the field at any given time.

Do you have a favorite bad joke? A horse walks into a bar, takes a seat and says... Hay.
