Highlights from before Yale: I've spent the past ten summers sailing with the Culver Summer Naval School in Culver, Indiana. There, I've been certified and raced lasers, 420s, MC and C scows and most recently Catalina Capri 22s. I also was captain of the R.H. Ledbetter, a three-masted square-rigger. It's a different kind of sailing, but just as fun!
 
Hobbies: Aside from sailing, I love to travel and cook!
 
Favorite thing about Yale: The residential college system, and being able to make new traditions at Benjamin Franklin College!
 
Favorite thing about the Yale sailing team: Being able to just be on the ocean and be friends with people who are passionate & competitive! 
 
Personal Fact: I'm a huge foodie but hands down my favorite food is avocado! I will eat it on just about anything and for any meal.
