How you got into table tennis: 
I started playing with my dad and 2 brothers in the basement around age 6. I found adaptive sporting competitions at age 13 such as the Michigan Victory Games, Thunder in the Valley Games and Junior Nationals.  I attended my first International Para Table Tennis Tournament in 2013 – The Mike Dempsey Memorial. I then found a coach and local clubs and began competing in sanctioned tournaments, including three US Opens.

Something interesting about you: 
I am a multi sport athlete who played football, basketball and baseball as a kid.  In high school,I switched from football to tennis and played for 4 years (3 on varsity).  I was named First Team All county as a junior and to the County Dream team as a senior, competing in three State Finals Tournaments.  I also did track and field.  I was a two time high school All American in the long jump (named by USOC) and qualified for the US Team selection event for Rio 2016.  I had a stroke at age two that left me paralyzed on my right side.  I play all sports completely one handed and I wear a leg brace for foot drop.  I work at the local hospital in nutrition services.  I am also a respite care provider and a motivational speaker. I published my first book in April of 2017.
