My fencing journey began at age 10, when I started fencing lessons at the Peter Westbrook Foundation, a program for inner city kids with former Olympians as coaches. I was immediately intoxicated by the sport and was amazed by the way fencers moved and looked on the strip. In youth fencing I was ranked as the number one American fencer U-17 and Junior. I qualified for six Cadet/Junior World Championships.
I attended St. John's University on a fencing scholarship where over the course of the next four years, was named to the All American team 3 times, and won two individual silver medals and one silver team medal in the NCAA Fencing Championships.
In 2012, I became a World Champion in fencing as a member of the first U.S. Men’s Epee Team to win the Gold Medal in the history of the sport.
I have been a member of the USA Fencing Athlete Advisory Counsel and was named to the United States Olympic Committee Council on Racial and Social Justice, an athlete-led council formed to address the rules and systems in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic movements that create barriers to racial progress.
I am currently the assistant coach for men's and women's fencing at NYU and am currently coaching at the Fencing Academy of Philadelphia where I hope to develop the nations next generation of fencing athletes.
