When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing in middle school in Philadelphia, PA, United States of America.
Why this sport? He joined a club after being introduced to the sport through fencing lessons at school. "After I got the basics taught to me a couple weeks in, it was clear that I kind of had a talent and the coach told me so. And so I started taking it pretty seriously very early on."
