  1. Where are you from?
    I am a true Long Islander, born and raised in Stony Brook, NY.
  2. How many teams do you represent?
    I represent 20 Varsity Sports that are members of the America East Conference and the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) (Football).
  3. How were you chosen to be school mascot?
    I have been a part of the Stony Brook family since 1995--just a year after the Stony Brook varsity teams became known as the Seawolves. The fourth nickname in Stony Brook history, Seawolves was selected from a list of more than 200 possible names by a 32-person committee comprising students, alumni, faculty, and administrators.
  4. Do you have any friends that are mascots?
    Of course! I am friends with all myfellow mascots in the America East Conference and CAA for football. I am also friendly with many of our fellow Long Island mascots in the professional leagues such as Quackerjack from the LI Ducks and Sparky the Dragon from the NY Islanders. In addition, during the summer of 2011 I was fortunate to be a part of the 2011 ESPN College Gameday Commercial where I met other well known, collegiate mascots!
  5. What is your favorite campus event?
    My favorite campus event would have to be homecoming which is known as Wolfstock: Long Island's Biggest Backyard BBQ! Nothing is better than seeing all my Seawolves fans, alumni, and friends of the local community come together for a fun filled day of Stony Brook spirit and pride!
  6. What is your favorite New York State destination?
    There are too many! Southampton's beaches, 5th ave in NYC (Especially when marching in the Annual Columbus Day Parade!), Madison Square Garden and after this past year, the Great NY State Fair!
  7. What is your favorite Broadway play?
    Rock of Ages
  8. What do you consider the ideal fan?
    I would have to say that the ideal fan is one who loves Stony Brook, goes to as many games and campus events as possible and of course wears their Seawolves RED!
  9. What’s it like to be a mascot?
    Being a mascot is truly an honor for me, it allows me to contribute to the spirit and pride that exists at Stony Brook University. It also enables me to motivate our campus community and represent my fellow Seawolves locally. Fun fact: According to the legend of the Seawolf, anyone fortunate enough to view it was subject to good luck. I'd like to think that I bring luck to my Seawolves family!
  10. What do you like to do for fun?
    Participating in activities on campus, performing with the Stony Brook University Dance Team, Cheerleading Team and Spirit of Stony Brook Marching Band, as well as cheering with our student Red Zone!
