Personal Claim to Fame: In college, I helped to organize and run a program that paired varsity athletes with underprivileged children in a free-to-join sports league. It still exists today.
Inspiration in Life: O.J. Simpson before the legal drama. When he was a kid, he had rickets. For his birthday, when he was still young, his father took him to a signing to meet Jim Brown and O.J. hobbled right up to him and told him he was going to break all his records which he eventually did. Iím a sucker for underdog stories.
Hobbies: Exercising, writing/reading and partying.
Pet Peeves: Dumb people.
3 Words to Describe You: Charming, brilliant and cocky.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I think I will play most like Russell. You can control and rule with an iron first. You just have to be clever enough for them to thank you for it in the end. Iíll run the show from day 1 until Iím handed an oversized check with my name on it.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: Iíve been watching Survivor since I was 12 years old. Some kids grow up watching baseball on TV and dream of getting their chance to play in the big leagues. I grew up watching and dreaming about playing Survivor.
Why You Think Youíll ďSurviveĒ SURVIVOR: Iím smart, Iím athletic and Iím nice to look at.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Thereís no reason to play the game if youíre not playing to win. Iím not trying to see Ďif I have what it takesí or Ďhow far I can make it.í The best thing I have going for me is my single-mindedness to be the champion.
