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).
I was born and raised a hockey product of Oshawa and grew up playing Oshawa minor AAA. I was fortunate enough to be coached by the most recognized name in Oshawa coaching history, Gil Hughes. Under his strict guidance I was able to develop into a stronger more disciplined player and move on to play 3 years with the Oshawa Generals. I attended the Quebec Nordiques training camp and after 3 years junior, I moved on to play 4 years in the OUA for the Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks. While there I was fortunate to play for Team Canada and Competed in the World Universiade in 1999 in Slovakia where we won Bronze by beating Russia. I returned to competitive hockey and spent 6 years with the Whitby Dunlops and was recognized 3 times as the top defenceman in the league. I am now a coach in the Oshawa Minor Hockey Association.

I coach because I enjoy seeing people succeed and attain their goals. Hockey brings people together, keeps us active and Healthy. We’re Canadian, we’re the best hockey players in the world, and we’re training the future.
I was born and raised in the Durham Region and I have had a passion for hockey my entire life.
Starting at a very young age as a player I won four consecutive OMHA Championships with the Clarington Toros. My hockey career continued and I played with the Ajax A’s, Junior A, as an under aged player. Continuing with my hockey passion I trained hard and I was fortunate enough to be drafted to play on the Ottawa 67’s team. I was being coached by the legendary Brian Kilrea who inspired me to want to help other players the way Brian helped me. During my Junior A career I was fortunate to be selected to work at the Bobby Orr Hockey School, which is where my passion for teaching young hockey players of all ages began. I’ve been very involved in numerous hockey camps and facilities coaching students ranging in ages from 4 to adults. I have had the pleasure of coaching various teams from Tyke to Midget, and enjoying the challenge of helping athletes achieve their goals. My passion in life is to live, learn, pass it on.
