2018: UVC All-Academic Team … did not appear in any matches due to injury.

2017:
UVC All-Academic … MIT Most Improved Player of the Year Award … played in 72 sets … recorded eight kills and four blocks against #2 SUNY New Paltz (3/18) and #7 NYU (4/1) … also produced eight kills versus #1 Springfield (4/8).

2016: Played in 13 sets … generated four digs and four blocks against Regis (1/21) … posted three kills versus Emerson (1/16).

Off the Court at MIT: Majoring in and computer science with a concentration in music … two-time men's volleyball captain ... completed research on writing software to analyze data of RNA structure in the Rouskin Lab at the Whitehead Institute … President of Kappa Sigma Fraternity ... USG Corporation National Merit Scholarship ... 

Why I Chose MIT: MIT’s combination of elite academics and high-level volleyball was what put the school on my short list of possible colleges. What set MIT apart from other universities I was considering was and still is the people. From the students and lecturers to the athletic trainers and cleaning staff, it is truly difficult to find someone on campus who would not go out of his or her way to help a person in need.

High School: A 2015 graduate of Lincoln-Way West High School … two-time all-conference … Team 22 (all-area) selection … Chicago Tribune All-Academic Team … four-time varsity letterwinner … team MVP as a sophomore … three-time recipient of the Varsity Scholar Athlete Award … valedictorian … National Honor Society president … Mu Alpha Theta president … Illinois State Scholar … AP Scholar with Distinction … USG Corporation National Merit Scholarship (National Merit finalist) … Mathletes president … Pi Sigma Pi ... Board Game Club.

Club: Ultimate Volleyball Club … top 15 at USAV Open Nationals for five straight years including tying for fifth place twice.
