- What does the experience of being a Penn student-athlete mean to you?
To be able to learn and explore my academic interests at such a prestigious institution is a true blessing and to be able to balance that with such a passion of baseball is a rewarding process. It is true, the academic course load is demanding and challenging at times, but having baseball as an avenue for coping with the conditions of academic routine, has been a tremendous contributor to how my time here at Penn has turned out so far.
Ocala (Silver Springs), Florida

Pope John Paul II High School. (Boca Raton, Florida)

- Favorite Penn Sports moment to date?
Lou Gehrig Division Playoff, in a tough loss against Columbia, winner of the game went on to Ivy League Championship against Dartmouth. It is not necessarily a favorite memory but it is a vivid memory. Having been so close, provides a clear picture of where we need to be this year and how we have to get to that opportunity again.
- Favorite Class to date?
Desire and Demand OR Science, Technology and Warfare
- What does life after Penn look like (i.e.- ideal job, where you live, what will make you happy)?
God willing, hopefully get an opportunity to play professional baseball. Right now at this moment in my life, that is what I would be happiest doing, fulfilling a dream, and following a passion.

Ultimate career goal is to one day become a philanthropist and have an impact of some sort in the lives of others, however big or small.
