I started playing hockey at the age of 7 years old. Before playing hockey, I played travel soccer for a while. I was playing hockey for my local AA club, the Florida Jr. Everblades. I was lucky to have Brain Rafalski and Jason Blake as my coaches. Once I got better, I was able to play for the Florida Alliance with older boys since they didn't have my age group yet. In one of the tournaments, in Chicago, I was selected to play for the Chicago Jr. Blackhawks in the Brick tournament in Edmonton. Ever since that tournament I was exposed to the highest level of competitive hockey in North America. After the Brick tournament, my coach Yanic Perreault which had the highest face off win percentage in the NHL, invited me to play for his fall team that he would coach next season which was the Chicago Mission. Now I have been playing for the Chicago Mission for five seasons with them.
One of my biggest goals are to play college hockey, because I would want a strong education and to play hockey at a high level. I am a hard worker on the ice but also in the classroom with a 4.0 GPA. I always push myself on the ice to become better every ice session but I also push my teammates. I always work hard in practices as I do in games. I am a very competitive player which makes my teammates better also. The education from playing college hockey can help me be successful even if I don't play pro hockey. Also, the game is played at a high level while having an education.
