I am the youngest child in my family as I have two brothers and two sisters. I grew up on a farm until I was ten. Throughout my life I have always enjoyed having a good time with family and friends. Sports were always a big part of my life and still are a big part. I’m an avid Packers and badgers football and basketball fan. I graduated from Pulaski high school in 2012 where I played football, ran track, and played rugby. After graduating I entered the work force for two years but now I am attending NWTC in Green Bay. I still play rugby for the Green Bay rugby club and it is one of my favorite hobbies.
