I Chose Cal because...I had a really good time on my recruiting trip and Jennifer Thomas aka JT.

My favorite thing about Berkeley is...being able to go to the City whenever I please.

The most interesting thing I did this summer was...riding a mechanical bull.

When I'm upset, I like to...watch movies with my roommate GG.

I get mad when I miss these TV shows: "Gossip Girl," "NCIS" and "Grey's Anatomy"

The best moment in sports history was when...the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004.

Something I learned from my parents is...be confident in yourself.

If I wasn't a soccer player, I would be...doing something in fashion.

Do you have any hidden talents? I know almost all of the Disney songs from the 90s

What is one thing about your hometown that you miss? The beach! And the weather
