Most of my highlights are connected to the Men’s Volleyball Program at Long Beach State. They include two different NCAA Championship appearances, several Big West Championships, and an extensive amount of travel with the team to different parts of the United States. As a non-local, I truly appreciate the beauty of this city and its surroundings, and enjoy going to beaches, exploring downtown, and going south to visit Orange County coastal cities.

I got recruited by Long Beach State after playing against the United States at a U19 World Championship in Tunisia, back in 2019. My recruiting process survived through the Covid-19 pandemic, and I finally arrived in the US on the 15th of November, 2020.

After graduating in May, I will quickly return to Europe to start my career as a professional volleyball player. I plan on pursuing that path for around 10 years, and continue my academic process by getting a master’s degree.

We value alumni very much, and appreciate the path that they have paved, as well as the continuous support they give us as current players, both for our athletic and our academic success.
