Wolcott, Colorado
What are you studying at Bates?
What are you involved in on campus?
I am on the Nordic Ski team. 
What are some of your hobbies?
I like hanging out with friends, playing sports, and being in the outdoors. 
Something we don't know about you?
I have three brothers who are really cool. I also have asthma, that’s kinda cool. 
Describe a dream date:
Lindsey Vonn would be a fun person to go on a date with. It has been four and a half years since our first date…. I’m curious to see if her Audi could handle me now.
Favorite childhood memory? 
My favorite childhood memory is going to the beach every summer with my family. Nothing better than jumping off the diving board and soaking in the summer sun, am I right?
What/who is your spirit animal? 
I would have to say my spirit animal is a salmon. I enjoy swimming up stream. I am also a proficient swimmer in both salt and fresh water.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would probably give myself more chest hair, it’s been 20 years and I am looking a little bare.
Favorite Bates memory? 
My favorite Bates memory has to be the week before leading an Aesop this past year with Sally Ryerson. We spent the entire week hanging out with all the other Aesop leaders and playing games like capture the flag and a scavenger hunt. It was one of the most fun weeks I have ever had and I made so many new friends!
Favorite quote?
