I chose Washington because: Not only does it offer everything from diverse majors to excellent athletics, it also has the cherry blossoms in the quad during the spring.
The best thing about Seattle is: The Pike Place Market.
Favorite class: Communication 340, the History of Mass Communication with Professor Baldasty.
My best race was: NCAA Championships, 2002. We came from 3rd place to win. We really came together as a team and a boat and really put our hearts into it.
After I graduate, I plan to: Travel.
If I could tell my incoming teammates one thing, it would be: Everything is an opportunity.
Curry says: "Washington Rowing is true competition."
