  • On making the switch to beach"I didn’t think I would be here so soon. Just the stars aligned and I said let’s just go for it. Obviously I need to figure out the world of beach volleyball and how to make a living and things like that, but I’m excited to see where beach volleyball goes. It's gonna be fun. We're going to put on a show."
