What’s your favorite thing to do off the field?
Cooking. I love cooking my own food instead of going to eat out.
Do you like cooking for other people? What would you make them?
Yeah, I cook for other people. I’d make anything they’d want really.
What do you usually do to prepare for a game?
I listen to an inspirational video, like Eric Thompson and Tony Robbins and country music or jazz.
Do you have a game day playlist?
I do. It’s really random. It’s got French music and Jazz. There’s country music — Kenny Chesney. I feel like it’s more relaxing than hip-hop. I get pumped up and visualize me being on the field.
Do you have any good luck charms or rituals?
Not really. Breakfast is kind of a ritual thing for me. I eat a good breakfast.
How do you approach training or know when you’ve had a good day at training?
I approach training by the amount of goals I score and how I improve on something that will make a difference and take it to the field.
How did you end up in Louisville?
I ended up in Louisville because I emailed the coaches at 3 o’clock in the morning and said I’d like to come to Louisville and try for soccer. I quit my job and I came here.
Do you have a favorite soccer memory?
It would be private school, semifinal. I came in and I scored two goals in three minutes.
If you had to play another position, which would it be and why?
It would be right back, because you can see everything and assist a lot of people to score goals.
If you weren’t a pro soccer player, what would you be doing?
I would travel the world. I’d work in a hotel business and cruises and travel the world.
Do you have a specific place where you’d want to go?
I would love to go to Barcelona, Spain.
Do you have a favorite sport other than soccer?
What are you hoping to do this offseason?
To work even harder than I worked for this season and be ready for the next adventure.
What’s one thing on your bucket list?
To improve as a player and make it to the next level.
Do you have a favorite TV show?
Yes, my favorite TV show is Breaking Bad. I like it because part of it took place in Connecticut where I live, and I like the concept of family and sacrifice and love.
Do you have a favorite film?
My favorite film would be Into the Wild. I loved the book and I like the movie and how the guy wants to just enjoy his own life and not have society telling him what to do.
Do you have a favorite book?
Blue Eyes — it talks about racism and how you grow and learn from other people and race and how to stay humble.
What’s something that you completely geek out over?
Cartoons. Tom and Jerry. I liked it so much as a kid and just loved it, and I still watch them.
What’s something your teammates don’t know about you?
I don’t think they know that I speak four languages: French, English, Creole and a broken Creole, and Spanish. And I love dancing — salsa, the Bachata — they don’t know about that.
