What are your most memorable athletic achievements?
My most memorable athletic achievement was winning the All-Ontario Baseball Championships in 2019. In Grade 9, I was also awarded MVP of our school athletics program.

Outside of hockey, what are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about striving to be a hard worker known for always putting forth my best effort. I also believe it is important to be respectful to everyone and develop long-lasting relationships. In the warmer month's I also enjoy golfing with my friends at our local golf course in St. Mary's.

How would you describe yourself as a player?
I would describe myself as an offensive defenseman that has strong playmaking ability. I use my hockey IQ to read developing plays, and make smart passes to my teammates. When the opportunity presents itself, I don't hesitate to join the rush as an extra attacker to create some additional offensive opportunities.

What are your academic aspirations and accomplishments?
I have not yet decided what I would like to pursue in the future. My goal right now is to focus on finishing high school while maintaining a diverse academic resume. This will allow me to pursue multiple career opportunities in the future when I am ready to make that decision.

What is something about you that most people would not know?
I am partially colour blind, and I often mix up colours such as pink or purple. At hockey, when I get dressed, I also have a superstition of putting on all my left-sided equipment before my right.
