MY JOURNEY // EST. 1994
I was coached at an early age by Rodney Eyles, formerly ranked PSA World #2 and 1997 World Open Champion. Rodney Martin, also formerly ranked PSA World #2 and 1991 World Open Champion, became my coach in 2006. Based in Greenwich, CT, Rodney is the founder of RMS, an advanced program for top squash players. Off the court, I was trained by Scott Schaeffer, D.C. C.S.C.S., who guided my physical development and helped me stay healthy during my junior career.
Apart from squash, I played every sport I could get my hands on! Soccer, baseball, lacrosse - you name it. I 100% believe this kept me from burning out at an early age.
I graduated cum laude in 2013 from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Psychology.
During my senior year, I had the honor of being presented with the Kenneth Archibald Prize, which is awarded to "the member of the graduating class of Dartmouth College who has been four years in attendance, who has been the best all-around athlete, regard also being given to moral worth and high standing in scholarship."
I finished my athletic career at Dartmouth as a 3-time First Team All American, 4-time First Team All-Ivy, 2-time CSA Scholar Athlete, and co-winner of the Skillman Award for sportsmanship in college squash. I shared this award with long-time friend, former Princeton squash player, and current pro squash player Todd Harrity.
PSA WORLD TOUR
I have been a full-time professional on the PSA World Tour for 8 years now, and am based in Philadelphia, PA.
I am always in the pursuit of finding the best training strategy for squash, and am currently focused on blending strength training with movement and mobility on court. As the ferocity of the game has increased over the last decade, it is paramount to work on speed and power, but in a way that minimizes injury.
Apart from physical training, I love working on the mental side of the game - Just like squash itself, it's easier said than done!
