Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I was born in Montreal, Quebec but later moved to Burlington, Ontario. I went to Plattsburgh State University where I majored in Early Childhood Education. I started off as a figure skater and decided to start playing hockey when I was 8 years old.
Describe yourself as a player.
I like to think of myself as a two-way defenseman. I’m not afraid to jump in the play when I see a chance but I also play very defensively in my own end.
What is your biggest accomplishment in hockey?
Winning three consecutive NCAA D3 Championships.
How does it feel to have signed a contract to play for Göteborg Hockey Club in SDHL?
It feels great to have signed a contact with Gothenburg. I played for the Memmingen Indians in Germany last year and it was an amazing season so I am happy to have a similar experience in a new country with a new team.
What are your goals for the upcoming season?
My main goal this season is to be the best player I can possibly be for this hockey club. I want to bring my experience and competitiveness to the table to help the team perform at their best.
