What attracted you to US Lacrosse?
An opportunity to merge two passions — writing and sports, specifically lacrosse — at a lively, exciting place.
What do you like most about lacrosse?
Soccer’s field dimensions, football’s physicality, hockey’s precision passing, basketball’s play geography — it all exists in lacrosse, along with up-beat, action-packed play. And the sport’s growth is exciting.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can blow bubbles off my tongue. Gross? Yes. But undoubtedly funny.
What’s your hometown?
Berwyn, Pa., in suburban Philadelphia. Most people just say "outside Philly."
What song is playing on your iPod now?
Not necessarily a song that’s popular right now, but one that I can’t turn off when it comes on: "Right Above It" by Lil Wayne and featuring Drake. That’s my jam.
What is your favorite book/magazine/newspaper/blog/etc.?
Twitter. It has made my overall media consumption much more efficient (and entertaining).
Where in the world would you like to take a two-week-long, all-expense-paid vacation?
Duck, North Carolina in the Outer Banks.
