My favorite athletic moment at Brandeis has been:

Rallying for end of the season wins in 2011 and 2012 against rival NYU


My goal for the 2012-13 season is:

Improve on the last three seasons and come out a much more successful team, and enjoy and appreciate the process of success.


My favorite class at Brandeis is:

Organizational Behavior with Professor Andrew Molinsky. I felt like it was a culmination of all of my favorite classes, and I was able to apply knowledge from so many different fields of study for one subject. It also had a certain sense of real-life applicability that I really appreciated.


My favorite professional athlete is:

Troy Polamalu, because his presence is always felt on the field, athletes fear him, and his work ethic is incredible… he’s relentless.
