Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 Because I got lucky when I did not know what I wanted in a school, and it turned out that Hope was exactly what I did not know I was looking for.

If you have chosen a major, please explain how you plan to use it after graduation. I want to have the same effect on my players lives that my coaches have had on mine.

Where is your favorite place on campus? Either the Pine Grove or our outdoor tennis courts.

What is your favorite pre-game music? Something with a lot of base, and a quick beat with good lyrics.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Swimming.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? "Always change a losing game." "You don't always have to play pretty Roger Federer tennis."
