How is Washington different from where you grew up? Des Moines is a city, but it’s not as fast-paced.

Highlight of last season? My first game. It was a home game, against Kansas City. It was on ESPN2 so everyone could see me.

Describe your perfect day off. Just hanging out back home. Having some friends come over and playing college football on Xbox.

What’s your dream job? I’d love to be a financial broker. It’s what my mom does. I was an accounting major in college.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? I’d want to read people’s minds. Just to know what they’re thinking when you’re in a conversation, to know if they really want to be talking to you.

What did you eat for breakfast this morning? Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Definitely my favorite.

Where do you like to hang out? Georgetown. I like the bar Town Hall.
