Tell us a bit more about yourself:
Sailing has been a huge part of my life since I was 8 years old. I began sailing competitively in Optis at age 10 and moved on to Lasers when I reached high school. I competed internationally in the Laser and Laser Radial for 4 years and was a member of the US Sailing Development Team in Lasers in 2010 and 2011. Windsurfing was interesting to me because of the speed and extreme physical requirements of the sport and I began RS:X windsurfing in the fall of 2011. Since then, I have dedicated myself to learning as much as I can about the sport, the equipment, the techniques and the strategies of RS:X sailing. Incorporating my knowledge of competitive sailing into my RS:X education has accelerated my learning curve and allowed me to compete at the highest levels of RS:X racing. I am about to complete my sophomore year of college and then I will focus exclusively on campaigning for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
