Why did you choose Harvard?
I chose Harvard because I wanted to be challenged, and I liked Harvard's community. Also, I loved the team. 

What's your favorite pregame meal?
Chicken parmesan and a caesar salad, or salmon. 

What are three words you would use to describe yourself as a hockey player?
Tenacious, dependable and resilient

What/who are you listening to pregame, and why?
I am not really sure why, but I like to listen to anything by Nicki Minaj and Florence and the Machine. 

What is your favorite thing about Cambridge/Boston?

What other Harvard team do you enjoy watching as a fan?
I like watching women's volleyball.

If you could travel back in time, when/where would you go?
I would travel back to 1950's Paris purely for the fashion.

I would like to be able to read people's minds.
