Why did you choose Nevada?

I spent a lot of time in Reno growing up because it is the closest big city to my hometown. It also has a very good Civil Engineering program, and my Dad is a Nevada Alumni.

What has been a highlight of your career at Nevada?

The first time I cleared 12 feet was a highlight.  The 2009 Outdoor WAC Championships was a great meet.  There was so much intensity as we were taking it down to the wire with Louisiana Tech.

What are your goals for this season?

My goals for this year are to place in the top 5 at the WAC Championships and qualify for the NCAA Regional meet

What meet are you most looking forward to this year?

I always look forward to the WAC Championship meets.  Championship meets just have a different feel than a regular season meet.
