Why Iowa… I really enjoyed the campus and how close everything is. I also really liked the team atmosphere and the coaching staff.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… That rowing is such a team sport, we all rely on each other to get down the course.

What made you want to become a rower… My grandfather was a NZ national champion in rowing and so I thought I might give it a try. I showed up to the trials at my high school and loved it.
