Motivated, determined, hard-working, disciplined, and driven are just a few words that describe my personality. Since beginning my riding career just over 9 years ago, I have attacked this sport with all of my tenacity and eagerness to be the best. My dream of being a top level rider is beginning to become a reality. Three years ago, I was lucky enough to find a world class mare, Cavallino Cocktail, overseas in Denmark. Since then, she has helped me achieve such accomplishments as a Team Silver Medal at the NAJYRC in 2011, as well as top placings at two-star and three-star competitions. Most recently this year, she and I placed second in the CIC 3* at Twin Rivers this spring, before placing in the top ten at the Jersey Fresh CCI 3*, where we won the Markham Trophy for the highest placed young rider. Cavallino Cocktail and I were also named to the 2013 Under 25 Developing Riders List as well as the 2014 Under 25 Developing Riders List. I am currently based in North Carolina at Will Faudree's premiere facility striving for perfection everyday. My dream is to stand atop the Olympic podium when the American Flag is raised up while the United States National Anthem permeates the stadium. Mark Twain said "today's dream is tomorrow's reality."
