One thing about goalkeeping you wish you knew when you started: How hard is refocus in a match after you make a mistake so that you can move on and continue to perform.
One thing you still struggle with in goal today: Always the pregame nerves
Favorite RGK glove model: Vulcan Shockwave and Vulcan Surge
If you could play for any club which would it be: Boca Juniors
Describe your best save ever: It was in an LA Classic, Chivas USA vs LA Galaxy u-18. I made a double save in the center of the goal but couldn't collect the ball. The ball was still in play so I got up as quickly as possible and blocked the next shot which was in the bottom corner of the goal toward the opposite side.
