About Me

Diving has been my passion since I was 7 years old, and I look forward to focusing solely on diving competitively in college.


I have been playing lacrosse since I was in second grade. This past season, I was one of three sophomores to make the varsity team and started the majority of the games, playing mostly midfield and taking the draws for my team.


I started competing in gymnastics when I was five. When I reached level 7 at age 12, I stopped gymnastics to focus more on diving. In 9th grade, I was excited to get back to gymnastics as a part of my high school varsity team, which offers a fun and competitive team environment.

Midnight Run

An organization in which volunteers distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless living on the streets of New York City. I have been a participant in this club since freshman year and have made countless “runs" into NYC. As elected President for the next two years, I am responsible for organizing monthly collections of toiletries, food, and clothing, and planning the runs into NYC for distribution with fellow club members.

Civic Education (“CivEd”) Advisor

This is a community within Scarsdale High School to assist the freshman transition into High School. Each year, the deans select 8 rising juniors (4 boys and 4 girls) as new advisors. As an advisor my responsibilities include planning communal activities, listening to and assisting with problems or issues freshman may be experiencing, and being an over all role model in and out of school.
