What is the name of your favorite polo pony and what is so special about them?

Hugs. She makes me feel invincible! Even if I am a step too slow she makes up for it gives everything she has every time we go on the field. She never needs to be schooled and I honestly can’t remember her ever having a bad day.

What is your greatest polo achievement?

I am fortunate to have a couple from different times in my life. I was part of a team that won two National Championships for The University of Virginia. Since coming back from my long hiatus from polo, winning last year’s Skins Tournament is absolutely one of my all-time favorite polo moments.

What is a hobby you have outside of polo?

If I was not playing polo I would be playing golf.

What countries have you played polo in?

United States, Argentina, Dominican Republic, England

What do you like most about Eldorado Polo Club?

On top of being such a beautiful place to play polo I really enjoy how many other members of the club are real purists when it comes to polo and have great appreciation for their horses.

Who introduce you to polo and where did you begin playing?

I can honestly say my Mother made me do it! My high school, Garrison Forest in Owings Mills Maryland had a team and my Mom forced me to go try it. Obviously she knew best!

What is your favorite TV show and/or artist/band?

I am not proud to admit I like my reality television but I am too proud to own up to what I watch.

What athlete (outside of the polo world) do you admire the most?

I have great admiration for Brett Favre who always played for the true love of the game.

If you could change one thing about your game, what would it be?

Consistency! I know what I am capable of I just wish I could play to my ability every time I set foot on the field.
