Other information
STUDY SWITCH
He entered the University of Miami as a mechanical engineering major before switching to sports administration. "The engineering was a little too much to handle with the amount that I was travelling internationally and with school, so we decided to switch to sports administration, which has been nice because I get to see what's behind the scenes for all these major events. I always just travel and go to nationals and whatnot, but I never know the workings that go on behind it. That's been cool to understand how everything falls into place." (teamusa.org, 21 Jun 2018)
