1. Where are you from and whom did you row for prior to Dartmouth?
I’m from New Canaan, Connecticut but I went to Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massachusetts. After switching from lacrosse, I rowed for Deerfield during my junior and senior years. When I showed up for practice on the first day of preseason all my coach said was, “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
2. Why did you choose Dartmouth and the Dartmouth Rowing Program?
I chose Dartmouth because of its strong academic reputation, picturesque location and frat population. The rowing program was particularly attractive due to the Connecticut River. I’ve rowed all over New England and I still think our water and scenery are the best around. And as I learned over sophomore summer, the river is also great for recreation. I have enjoyed canoeing, boating, waterskiing and wakeboarding on the Connecticut.
3. What do you participate in at Dartmouth, apart from rowing?
I’m in a fraternity and I tutor in statistics.
me something about yourself that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
I have seen all 180 episodes of Seinfeld and consider myself an expert on the subject.
5. What is your best memory from rowing at Dartmouth so far?
During a spring row my sunglasses fell off my head and into the river. Without any hesitation I dove out of the boat and miraculously found them before they sunk. Winning our heat at sprints was pretty cool too.
6. What are your plans for the future?
I’d like to move to Jamaica and live with my friend Young Benni.
