Why I chose Yale: "I chose Yale because of the individuals on the squash team, because my sister had a great experience here prior to my coming, and because of the exciting up beat atmosphere."
Why he started playing squash "I started playing squash because my high school offered it. It looked like fun and I wasn't nearly passionate enough to pursue my hockey career any further."
Favorite Squash Moment: "Beating Antonio Diaz Salas Gonzalez 9-7 in the 5th game with most of my high school watching."
