What is one lesson you’ve learned from athletics? I have learned from athletics that you have to play both mentally and physically.

What do you love most about playing for Penn? My favorite thing about playing for Penn is making new friendships with new teammates.

What is your favorite sports movie, and why? The Short Game – it’s about golf and my brother and I used to watch it.

If you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be, and why? I would have lunch with Jordan Spieth. I think it would be interesting to speak with a professional golfer about how they got to where they are.

What do you enjoy most about playing golf? I enjoy playing golf because it’s an individual game and I can rely on myself to play and score how I want.

What influenced you to start playing golf? My grandparents and brother influenced me to play golf, and recently my brother has motivated me to play better so I can beat him.

What advice would you give to a freshman about Penn athletics? I would tell freshmen that Penn athletics are competitive, but fun, so work hard but enjoy playing and making memories.

What is your favorite food? My favorite food is french fries.

What do you think are the most important traits in a team leader? The most important traits in a leader are the ability to empathize with teammates and help them become better athletes while creating a fun environment for the team.

What is something that sports have taught you, that you use in everyday life? Golf, specifically, has taught me that a bad shot is just one shot and won’t ruin your round. This relates to life because you can have a bad day if you dwell over something that happened, or you can forget it and turn the day into something good.
