I am from the country grown cornfield town of Shelby, Ohio and I was raised in the rural town of Warner, New Hampshire. I am goofy by nature when I am around my friends but when I spend time alone I like to think introspectively or read a good book. I absolutely love to play sports although I am not always the most keen on watching them as many professional sports in my opinion have lost the spirit of competition and focus too much on the media and money involved. That is why the Olympics and World Soccer Cup are my favorite televised events as they are competitions for pride of country. My favorite sport is Basketball but I would say my best (and second favorite) sport is Soccer. I am attending Ithaca for the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program and down the road I hope to be able to become a professor of Physical Therapy. I am also very passionate about training and coaching and I hope to be able to pursue those passions in my lifetime as well.
