Why did you choose Lasell College?
I chose Lasell College because of the opportunities it provides and the opportunity I had to play soccer. I saw a developing program and I knew I could contribute to it.
What’s your favorite memory as an athlete at Lasell?
The Saint Joseph College of Connecticut game my freshman year. We tied the game but scored two goals in a matter of three minutes. I had one of my best games to this day.
Do you have any superstitions before you go into a game?
I have to listen to the same three songs before I can play. If I don't, I feel unprepared.
What do you do in your free time away from athletics?
I like to hang out with my roommates and head into Boston for some cannolis from Mike's Pastry.
Do you plan on continuing to play or to coach after you finish your career at Lasell?
I don't have any current plans for that, but if an opportunity presents itself I wouldn't be opposed to it.
Who has been a great influence in your life?
My parents have been the greatest influence on me. They have supported me everything I have done. My dad has been a huge influence when it comes to soccer. He has always been there for the far away tournaments and big games.
What is a little known fact about you?
I have a Superman tattoo on my ankle.
Where do you hope to be after graduation?
I hope to enter the working world. I may go to grad school, but I'd like to try to get started on a career.
