It seems that all of my life I have been on skates. I learned to skate around the time I turned 4. Before I started Kindergarden I began playing hockey with the Chugiak Mustangs in Eagle River, Alaska. Ever since then I have been on the ice, and love the game as much now as when I first started. I would like to play DI hockey and obtain a degree in computer software engineering with a focus on video game development. My ultimate goal is to play in the NHL. I am looking to transition to Jr Level hockey after 16U. My father was a DI college athlete and both of my parents have graduate degrees so they emphasize the importance of education and that "student" comes before "athlete" for a reason. My father has been in the U.S. Army for 27 years, and has multiple overseas deployments. Due to this, I have played on many teams since starting hockey. While difficult, this has enabled me to be very adaptable to new environments. I have played several sports to include baseball, basketball, soccer and ice hockey. I have also been part of a youth orchestra and play the piano, violin and drums.
