Biography

I started playing recreational soccer when I was really young, and I totally fell in love with the game. I always looked forward to practices and games, and I roped my friends and younger brother into playing pick-up soccer with me wherever I could find space. I started playing club soccer with Dakota Alliance Soccer Club (DASC) when I was 10, and I started devoting a lot more time to playing and practicing. I have a lot of fond memories playing for DASC, including winning Presidents Cup Nationals in 2019, spending time traveling to tournaments with my family, and becoming close with my teammates (including some current SFCFC players!). Last summer, I played for both DASC and SFCFC before heading off to play college soccer at MIT. I’m really excited to continue growing as a player and person this season with SFCFC!
