Favorite # and Why?
23 - A number worn by many of our sporting greats, but a number that does not hold as much popularity in soccer.

Do you play or have you played other sports?
Basketball (when everyone was my height) and Lacrosse (during a time when one of our local coaches needed somebody with "speed" to add 10-15 assists per game)

Tapas 177

Do you have any hidden talents/hobbies people don't know about you?
I DJ and use music in a similar way I use soccer to "escape" reality for a bit.

If you could have dinner with 3 famous people who would it be and why?
Will Ferrell/Jimmy Fallon - We wouldn't even be able to eat because of the laughter they would literally bring to the table. Pep Guardiola - that dinner would last all night by me picking every inch of his brain.

What are your career plans after soccer/school?
I currently own and operate my own soccer academy which I plan on investing most (if not all of my time) after my playing career ends.

Soccer Experience
I have been in professional systems for 10+ years now and have played throughout three continents, most recently playing Brazil, Malta, and California over the past three years.
