Rapid fire questions:


How did you first get in to the sport of shooting?

My father had shot as a child in New York. A NY State work friend of his reintroduced him to shooting when I was in University. Within a year, he and I were traveling around North America competing. I studied for the NY bar exam in a car in between shooting my rounds. I passed.


What is your favourite memory as an athlete?

I would have to say all the time spent with my parents at domestic and international shoots. They are both gone, but all those memories remain.


What is the best piece of advice you've gotten as an athlete?

stay in your own world.


Do you have any pre-competition routines or rituals?
Way too many to list. Checking all equipment before travelling.


Favourite movie or TV show?

The Harry Potter movies (but the books are better)


Favourite food?

Thai
