Why did you choose to come to the Coast Guard Academy? I have always been drawn to the Coast Guard and the law enforcement mission. I also obviously love the water and the Academy allows me to be stationed near the water.

How long have you been sailing? How did you start sailing? About 2 years. I started sailing for my high school team during my junior year.

What is your favorite thing about the sailing team at Coast Guard?  My favorite thing is being a part of a large team and getting the opportunity to sail with a bunch of different people.

What are your future sailing plans and career goals after graduation? I hope to be stationed in a place that has a large sailing community and to crew in some local big boat regattas.

Tell us something that your teammates would be surprised to know about you. I used to have a 1969 VW bug. I loved it very much, but unfortunately my parents have sold it since I left for the Academy.
