  • Nickname: "Ty"
  • Hobbies: Snowboarding, lacrosse, automotive restoration, and waterskiing 
  • Quote: "Se vuoi puoi" - Italian for "if you want"
  • How'd you get started? My uncle, Michael Mariorenzi, paddled big whitewater while doing his general surgery residency. One day as a young child I came across some of his old pictures and became enthralled with whitewater kayaking.
  • Role model: My grandfather, A. Louis Mariorenzi, because he came from nothing and is a self-made man.
