Why did you choose Maine Maritime Academy?
I wanted to try something different from the rest of my family. The small school atmosphere was very welcoming when I visited, and I loved the idea of a “hands-on” education for engineering.
What will be your legacy as a Maine Maritime swimmer?
I will set the foundation for future excellence for Mariners swimming.
