Hobbies: “I love training MMA and BJJ, as well as working out in general but currently Rugby is my passion. I started playing it my freshman year here at Rowan and fell in love with it. I love playing the guitar, traveling, watching movies. I also love spending time with my friends, teammates, and my girlfriend. But, nothing beats a good Sunday dinner with the family at home. They are the most important thing in the world for me, can’t live without them.”
Advice for incoming freshmen: “I loved my freshman year, by far the best one in my college career. But what I would say to the freshmen coming into college is to have fun. Go out, step out of your comfort zone, and gain some experiences. Go meet new people. Make friends, they might become your best friends for life. Forget who you were in high school, no one cares about that in college. You will come across people with backgrounds different than yours, learn how to accept others for who they are. You can always learn something new from them. Join clubs, get involved with the school but most importantly, out of all the things I’ve said, ace all your classes. Work your butt off and do the best you can to make you parents proud. Don’t let your crazy friends influence you. School comes first and fun second. Besides, fun feels better after a long week of hard work ;)”
