Personal Statement

Throughout my childhood, I’ve grown up spending my winters watching NCAA hockey games in the Boston area, which has strongly influenced my desire to play college hockey.  My long-term goal is to play hockey at the highest possible level that I can while obtaining a high-level education.  

Some things that differentiate me from many players are my size, strength, physicality, and tenacious work ethic.  Skating wise, I move laterally better than many people my size.  Another strength I have is my vision of the ice.  I see lanes and make passes other players might not.  I also have a good stick when breaking up plays. In school, I have always been a strong student with a diligent work ethic.  I receive high marks, and I am constantly trying to make them better. 

As a person, I attempt to be the best version of myself everywhere I go.  The head of my school, Mr. Ned Parsons, made an analogy one day during an all-school assembly that stuck with me.  He told the story of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team.  He explained that the All Blacks would “sweep the sheds” after every game.  This means they would clean their locker room until it was spotless, which represents the idea of leaving places better than you found them.  I do my best to incorporate the concept of “sweeping the sheds” into my day-to-day life. 

When I’m not playing hockey, I enjoy going fishing with my family on Martha’s Vineyard for a week during the summer. In addition, I like to spend time learning the guitar. I also spend some of my free time reading books and watching movies.
