He was considered a nerd at Ewen High School. He is friends with Tommy Ross and is not to be seen as very popular. He seemed to have friendly relations with Carrie. He even helped her once regarding the computer. During the Black Prom he was filming the event with a portable camera. He also filmed the Carrie´s humiliation there instead of helping them.
