I am a hockey fanatic. I live and breathe the game. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I wasn’t very good at hockey, so ever since I was a little kid, it has been my dream to be a hockey broadcaster. In the last year, I have been heavily involved in the hockey community. In their inaugural 2017-18 season, I covered the American Hockey League’s Belleville Senators by writing post-game articles for InQuinte.ca. This past season, I also did play-by-play commentary for the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Wellington Dukes. As of this past June, I am a graduate of the Radio Broadcasting program at Loyalist College in Belleville, Ontario. I am currently working in programming and promotions for Bell Media Brockville (103.7 BOB FM & 104.9 JRFM), and Kingston (98.9 The Drive & 98.3 Fly FM).

Growing up, hockey was always a big part of my life. After starting my minor hockey career in Brockville, I moved up to play with the Rideau St. Lawrence AA Kings of the OEMHL. From there, I took my talents to Junior, and debuted the 2014 season with the Jr. B Brockville Tikis of the EOJHL. Being able to play junior hockey in my hometown was always a big deal for me. Although I wasn't the most productive Jr. B player, I was named our top rookie at rookie party, which is a night that I will never forget/remember. After Junior, I continued my hockey career. I currently play College hockey for St. Lawrence College in Kingston and consistently average over a point-per-game as an Assistant Captain.

I began my Jr. hockey career with the Jr. B Brockville Tikis of the EOJHL in 2014. In my rookie year, I put up a 10-4-2 record, with a 2.69 GAA and a .911 sv%, which was good enough to earn me the title of "2014 EOJHL Rookie of the Year". NBD. In my sophomore  season, I was traded away from the hockey club, along with 10+ of my teammates. I landed in Prescott to play for the Jr. A Prescott Flyers of the CCHL2, but hockey was never really the same for me. I have since moved to Toronto to study Ethics, Society and Law at the University of Toronto, but I am still in love with the game. I co-host a ball hockey tournament annually, I currently play intramural hockey at UofT, and I catch as many Toronto Maple Leafs games as possible, whether it's on TV or at Maple Leafs Square.
