I am a member of Sumter Y Swordfish Masters Swim Team. I learned to swim at a young age but didn’t start swimming competitively until I was 11.
My favorite event is the 100 and 200 freestyle. My least favorite is anything stroke – my wife says I wasn’t built to swim stroke. At swim meets, I enjoy connecting with swimmers from other teams and making new friends!
When I’m not swimming, I am enjoy being outdoors with my family. We spend our summers tubing and wakeboarding on Lake Marion. We also have a crazy dog named Penelope Rose (aka. Penny). I would she fits right in our family. She’s is a viszla, so she has a lot of energy. She loves to play and chase birds in our backyard.
My bucket list includes: taking my family to Brazil, so they can see where I grew up and understand a little more about my culture. I also want to take my my mom to see New York and Portugal.
