General Interest

General
NATIONALITY SWITCH
He previously represented the United States of America in sailing, including at the 2018 Junior 470 World Championships in Bracciano, Italy. In 2019 he requested US Sailing allow him to switch nationality to American Samoa, as he felt he had a better chance of securing an Olympic quota spot through the Oceania qualification events. The change was approved and he began representing American Samoa in 2020. (SportsDeskOnline, 01 Apr 2020; cdn.ussailing.org, 31 Jul 2019)

OCCUPATION
His bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering at Tufts University in the United States of America focused on aerodynamics.
