WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE SWIMMING/DIVING MOMENT? WHY?
Winning my High school State Championship in the 200 IM my junior year. Unlike reaching a new time standard, which is more of an individual accomplishment, winning something for my school and team is much more rewarding and exciting.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF AS AN ATHLETE AND AS A STUDENT.
I try to put as much effort into my studies as I do my swimming. Being an athlete makes me strive to constantly trying to do better and reach that next level. Therefore it has always been a goal of mine to be a scholar athlete and never let my grades or training suffer.

WHAT PIECE OF COACHING AND/OR PERSONAL ADVICE HAS STUCK WITH YOU OVER THE YEARS?
I asked one of my teammates once how he dealt with the nerves when he went to big swim meets and his reply was "its not like they are going to shoot you if you do bad." Ever since, before important races I remember that and relax, knowing no matter what you can still go home and move on from it.
