Who is Conquer?

We started Conquer as two ex-athletes longing for the opportunity to compete again. With busy and unpredictable work schedules, we wanted to find a way to play sports on a dime at a time convenient for us. As there are many ways to compete in life, there is nothing that compares to that pre-game thrill.

I graduated from Tulane University in May of 2020 and currently live in New York City. I hope my company, Conquer., will bring back those athletes who were once great at their sport, but stopped playing because of the inability to commit to scheduled events.

A few things I enjoy are reading non-fiction, lifting weights, lying on the beach, and watching the New York Jets.

I graduated from Fordham University in February of 2020 and am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Sports Management at Columbia University. Sports have always been an important part of my life, but after graduation I did not have many opportunities to continue playing. I hope that Conquer will give everyone a chance to compete with both old and new friends. 

A few things I enjoy are traveling and playing the piano.

I graduated from Lehigh University in May of 2020 and currently live in Bergen County, New Jersey. I hope that Conquer. can create a close knit community for people to play sports that they love and also improve their health. As someone who did not compete at the collegiate level, I missed having an easy way to play sports with my friends. 

A few things I enjoy are playing soccer, poker, the acoustic guitar, and working out.
