I chose Washington because: I wanted to come to a program that would challenge me both on the water and in the classroom. I wanted to get away from home, but stay on the West Coast."?
The best thing about Seattle is: Summer.
My best race was: Opening Day every year, because there is nothing like it in rowing.
After I graduate, I plan to: Coach rowing and work for a civil construction firm.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: Don't bother calling your mother, she can't help you now.
