What do you do outside of skating? I study Mechanical Engineering at the U of M twin cities, deer hunt (bow and rifle), fish, and lounge with the lizards.
What music have you been listening to lately? Classical rock all the time: lately I’ve been listening to the doors, steve miller band, and pink floyd.

Morning person or night owl? I’m a night owl, or a night duck

Favorite thing about the Midwest? The change of seasons; I like having harsh winters for part of the year, because then it makes the summer skating session that much better.

Goals? I want to graduate from the U of M twin cites with a major in Mechanical Engineering and still continue to skate all the way through.

Any last words or shout outs? I’m talkin about a little place called ASPEN. O’Henry? That’s one of our top-selling candy bars. It’s got chocolate, peanuts, nougat, it’s delicious, scrumptious, outstanding!
