I’m extremely grateful to have been offered the opportunity to play for Vanderbilt, and competing as a student-athlete was one of the most fun, rewarding experiences of my life. Doing my small part along with my teammates to transform the Men’s Tennis Team into an SEC Champion and a national title contender was extremely gratifying, and resulted in lifelong friendships with coaches, alumni, other student-athletes, and administrators.
What has motivated you to accept the board of advisors position and stay engaged with the program? I want to do anything I can to help each Vanderbilt team consistently excel on and off the court/field, and I believe that a strong, engaged, and supportive network of student-athlete alumni can go a long way toward achieving that goal.
How do you see the Black and Gold Club and all athletics alumni impacting the future of Vanderbilt Athletics? I believe that there are an incredible number of Vanderbilt student-athlete alumni around the world who want to see the Commodores at the top of the SEC each year, competing for National Championships. If we can all come together and reunite as one team, then I believe we’ll be able to positively influence new recruits, enhance the experience of current student-athletes, work to upgrade our facilities, and do so much more.
