Where are you from and whom did you row for prior to Dartmouth?

I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where I, like most people, had never heard about rowing. I played football on the offensive line throughout high school.

Why did you choose Dartmouth and the Dartmouth Rowing Program?

Our beautiful mountain surroundings, and the incredible opportunities for exploring them with smart, fun-loving people, are what most attracted me to Dartmouth. Once I arrived, I walked-on freshman year to try a new sport that would challenge me physically, yet promised an incredible team experience. Rowing has given me both, all while spending much of my days out on the pristine Connecticut River.

What do you participate in at Dartmouth, apart from rowing?

I am the House Manager for my fraternity, and I lead for the Outing Club’s First Year Trips program.

Tell me something about yourself that might come as a surprise to your teammates.

I enjoy creating visual art, particularly photography, filmmaking, and graphic design. I have shot projects for the Tuck School and students at the College, and I designed the poster for Dartmouth’s Ke$ha show in fall 2010.

What is your best memory from rowing at Dartmouth so far?

Of our three seasons, fall provides the best rowing on the Connecticut. As the days shorten, small-boat practices row through sunsets that light the forested shoreline afire in golden light, transforming exhausting practice into an experience of sublime nature. It is in these moments, paddling on glassy water into the twilight, that I most appreciate Dartmouth rowing.

What are your plans for the future?

I have no firm plans after graduation yet, but I hope to find something that will provide a variety of challenges while working hard in a team – just like rowing.
