What is your favorite part of gameday?

Charging out of the tunnels with the band behind me and the thousands of fans cheering us on. It’s hard not to love that exhilarating feeling before performing one of the best pregame shows in college football.

What do you like about Marching Knights?

I love the sense of community in this program, it just all feels like one big family that comes together for the love of music and performance. Also getting to see our newer members grow into their roles as a Marching Knight is a very satisfying part of the whole season.

What are you most excited about for this season?

 I am most excited to help bring the UCF Sound of Gold into the Big XII Conference and support our team as they transition into this fantastic Conference in college football. This is also my last year with the Marching Knights so I am looking forward to ending this season on a high note.

Describe a favorite hobby of yours.

I really enjoy watching movies, there is something about so many people working together to create such grand pieces of art that interests me. I love watching behind the scenes videos to see what the sets look like and what the process is like during production.
