Born in Stillwater MN. Raised in Marine on St. Croix, population 602 (including the cows). Went to high school at Stillwater Area High School and played soccer and jazz. Graduated and went to the University of Minnesota Duluth. I started playing ultimate my freshman year on Northern Lights and never looked back. I earned the role of captain as a junior, after playing on Sub Zero that summer. I stuck around for a half of a semester after my senior year to use all 5 years of my eligibility. It paid off and Northern Lights made it to College Nationals that year. I joined Drag'n in 2012 and enjoy every game I get to play with my amazing teammates. Winning Club Nationals was the payout to the hard work and dedication this team puts in week in and week out. It is an experience I will always remember. We will bring the fire to Italy to represent the USA, and hopefully end that tournament with the same feeling!
