Highlights from before Yale: Before coming to Yale I was the captain of my high school sailing team for two years.  I’ve been racing dinghies on the Long Island Sound for 12 years (I sail out of Cedar Point Yacht Club), and I have been racing on big boats for the last 6 years. Prior to attending college I took a gap year and lived on a sailboat with my parents and younger brother, sailing in the Caribbean, Bahamas, and the East Coast of the US.

Hobbies: Obviously I love sailing.  Besides sailing I also enjoy spending time outdoors (hiking, biking, etc.), playing piano, and spending time with my friends and family.

Favorite thing about Yale: I am really excited to get to try all of the different classes and extracurricular activities that Yale offers.  I also can't wait to get to know my fellow Yalies and to go to the Yale-Harvard game!

Favorite thing about Yale sailing team: I am looking forward to getting to sail with and practice racing against all of the really talented sailors who are on the team, and I am excited that I'll get to become part of such a close-knit team.

Random fun fact: I spent five days in the Bermuda Triangle on my boat (which didn't have a functioning engine), and I didn't die.
