PERSONAL: Parents Names are Kalli (mother) and Joe (father); has a brother Giacomo. Picked UCSC for the academics, the swim team, the location, and the "overall environment that UCSC has is perfect for me and fits who I am as a person." Also, I felt that the place as a whole would best prepare me for the future and help me become the best person I can be socially, academically and in the sport of swimming.
Most influential persons are parents and my old swim coach, Nori Hammond, because "I would not be the person that I am today without their help, postive influence, and drive to see me become the version of myself."
Hobbies/Personal interests include beach, going on adventures, being outdoors, camping, swimming, listening to music, hanging out with friends and family (including my 2 dogs), watching movies, and eating.
