Why did you choose Harvard?
I chose Harvard because I wanted to challenge myself in both athletics and academics. I chose the school that I felt could help me become my best self. I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere and the team. 

Is there any significance as to why you wear your number?
25 is 2 and 5 put together.

What's your favorite pregame meal?
Chicken parm has always been my go-to, but if that's not a possibility then I stick to the basics like chicken and bread.

Do you have any superstitions before getting on the ice?
I put my equipment on in the same order; right to left.

What are three words you would use to describe yourself as a hockey player?
Hardworking, physical and selfless.

What/who are you listening to pregame?
I listen to slower, mellow music like Lana Del Rey and Lorde. 

Where are you most likely to be found in the offseason?
If I am not in the gym or rink, I will probably be at a lake fishing or relaxing in my basement.

What is your favorite thing about Cambridge/Boston?
I am in love with the lively, warm atmosphere here. There is always something to do or see, but if you're not up for an adventure you are also able to sit back and take everything in. 

If you could travel back in time, when/where would you go?
If I could time travel I would visit my parents when they were kids to see what they were like.

If you could have a superpower, which one would you chose?
Teleportation, undoubtedly.
