Previous Season/Result: Season 14/3rd placeBiggest mistake you made in your previous season: Not drinking enough water and becoming dehydrated in Thailand. I fainted.Most memorable moment from your first Race: Finishing in first place for the first leg of the Race.
Favorite place you visited on your first season: Thailand, it was number one on my wish list for Season 14 so getting to go to both Bangkok and Phuket was fantastic.
Why do you want to run the Race again? It was one of the most exciting and best experiences of my life. I am looking forward to all the new places we will go.
How have you changed since the last time you competed? I am more confident and more willing to try new things.
What are you passionate about? People being kind and accepting of each other
People would be surprised to learn: Nothing, I’m pretty boring.
One location that you hope to go on this adventure: Ireland, my grandparents are from there and I would love to see the country.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Some of the challenges require you to be able to listen/hear/sign and when those challenges come up we have to pick the other challenge since Luke is completely deaf. He cannot hear or use oral language.
What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): Getting to spend time one-on-one with Luke
Pet peeve about your teammate: He is a very loud eater.
What would you do if you won the million dollars? Retire a few years earlier than planned.
Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We need to be more careful about reading the clues.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: I don’t think I will change anything since our strategy from last time worked well. Hopefully it will bring us to the final three again and we can win this time!
