Personal Statement

I am a Canadian born ice hockey goaltender (player) living in the US.

My dad and my brother are also Canadian and my mom is English. This has allowed me to live in many interesting places.

I started playing hockey in California. I was lucky enough to play for the California FirstStars AAA in the Carmen Starr Tournament in LA.

I spent the next five years in Dallas playing for the Dallas Stars Elite program.

My parents have taught me how important it is to have goals. I try to have small goals that are attainable so that each small success can be a stepping stone to my dreams.

 I set myself a goal. I wanted to play for a team where I could go to school with my teammates. I have been lucky enough  to play for Gentry Academy (Galaxy Tier 1 AAA team) the past 3 seasons and our core group had been the #1 ranked team in the USA during our U15 and U16 seasons. 

I will play for the Gentry Academy Stars MN USHS team the 20/21 season as a SR in High School and graduate.  After which I look to play Jr hockey and then College hockey. 

I love my life!

I wake up each morning and step on the ice with my teammates before we head to school together.

My brother Logan inspires me everyday! Logan will graduated from Bradley University in 3.5 years. He is a really talented musician and taught young children to play the guitar. He was once asked “How often do you practice to be that good?” My brothers answer was “I don’t practice the guitar, I live with my guitar”

Logan explained to me that it didn’t matter what he was doing at home, his guitar is always on his lap or close by. He is always thinking about writing a new song, perfecting a song or trying a new riff. Music is a lifestyle to him and goaltending is a lifestyle for me. I love to play hockey but I also enjoy surrounding myself with all aspects of the game. I watch videos of goalies practicing, their highlight reels and key saves that I can learn from.  I love to continually challenge myself both on the ice as well as new off-ice goalie specific drills.

I am very grateful to my goalie coaches who are excited to talk about last nights NHL highlights with me during my water breaks.

I believe my greatest strength is my mental toughness. I thrive on competing and improving every single game. I gained great experience playing in Dallas. I jumped at the chance to play highly ranked teams and giving my team a chance to win. I may not have won very often against these teams but I definitely learned how to stay focused and never give up. My toughness mentally helped me dig deep even when we were down a couple of goals. I am able to quickly focus on the task at hand which is stopping the next shot.

When I am not the goalie in the net, I enjoy supporting my team on the bench and be available for whatever they need.

My favorite quote is by Phil Jackson “Good teams become great ones when the members trust each other enough to surrender the ME for WE”

I thrive on being part of a team that has the potential for success.
