I chose Washington because: It has a winning rowing program and great academics.
The best thing about Seattle is: Pike Place Market.
The best thing about UW is: There are so many opportunities in education and sports.
My best race was: NCAA Championships, 2001, when we beat Brown in the final and won our race.
After I graduate, I plan to: Be rich.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: When you have extra workouts, do them on the erg, not biking or running. You'll see what pays off in the end.
Estevenin says: "UW Rowing pushes you beyond what you thought were your limits."
