Nickname: 

Pepe. I don't really know where it came from, but I think my family gave it to me because I’ve always been called Pepe.  

Strengths as a Student-Athlete: 

I try to be happy and have fun. Time goes by faster when you try to have fun and make the most out of things.

Favorite Food: 

Chipotle. I don't think i need to explain why, but I will give a brief explanation: you basically feel like you are in heaven, so when you want to have a idea what heaven feels like just go to Chipotle.  

Favorite Class at MSA:

Land Management because I get to cut trees down, and I learn some really useful skills.

Favorite Ride in Charlottesville:

Mud House Loop because it's David Yang’s Grand Fondo and is the most epic ride you can ever do.

Favorite Trail on MSA Campus:

I don't have a favorite one, really. When I ride, I just go where the trials take me to.

Favorite Race:

Green Mountain Stage Race in Vermont because of the car trip and because we have fun with Coach Robb. And we go cliff jumping.

Best Memory as a Member of the MSA Endurance Team:

When the whole team went to Olive Garden during a trip to Tour of the Battenkill and Coach Robb gave the best answer possible to the attendant when asked if he would like cheese on his pasta: "I love cheese," said Coach Robb. I could not stop laughing, and still laugh every time I think of that moment!
