Hockey has been my life since I was 2 years old. The game has given so much to me and has helped me grow on and off the ice. I take every opportunity I can to teach, as it allows me to give back to the game I love and work with kids that have similar dreams and aspirations that I had at their age.
I was fortunate to have many amazing role models over the years that helped mold me as a player and a person. As a Coach or Instructor I strive to provide similar guidance and leadership for young hockey players, so that they have the best opportunity to develop their hockey and life skills.
I’ve been involved in hockey as an instructor and/or director since I was 15 years old. In more recent years I have been involved in local minor hockey as a coach with my kids teams (Clarington Toros and Clarington Flames).
My playing career allowed me to experience hockey at several different levels, 5 years in the OHL (Oshawa & Ottawa), 3 years CIS (University of New Brunswick) and 4 years in professional hockey (ECHL, WPHL, IHL & UHL).
