Why Iowa… I chose Iowa because of the countless opportunities I would have access to within academics and extra-curricular activities. I love the archetypal college-town atmosphere.

My favorite aspect of rowing is… The sheer intensity of the sport and the unrelenting demand for synchrony even in the most grueling moments.
