Personal

Music

I love listening to and playing music. I play a few instruments fairly well (percussion, drums) and abunch not well at all.

Hockey

I've loved playing the sport since I was very young. My parents say the first clue was when noticed a little kid with volleyball pads on his feet attempting to skate around the kitchen with a makeshift stick. Goaltender has been my preferred position since about 10 years old.

Racquetball

I love playing racquetball and I'm always looking for other people that want to play!
