Nickname: BMart
What is something unique about you? I am a percussionist! In the summer of 2016 I was blessed with the opportunity to march snare drum with Drum Corps International (DCI). DCI is universally known and respected as the pinnacle organization of the Marching Arts. The life lessons learned through music have played an "instrumental" role in shaping me into the person I am today.
Any superstitions? No, but I do believe in the universe and stress the importance on patterned behavior.
Why did you choose Wichita State? Wichita State continues to be the most successful bowling program on earth by transforming good bowlers into GREAT people. Shocker Bowling gives student-athletes the life skills necessary to be successful in any aspect of life.
What do you want to do after graduation? I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to plan out the immediate years after college. I will likely go into industry for a few years to gain experience,  find mentors, grow wealth and eventually launch my own company.  The exact path and timing remains a mystery.
