I am a self motivated individual. I was raised to respect others, work hard, play harder and try to lift the spirits and potential of those around me. Putting others before myself is how I try to live my life. I have been known to be that play maker / energizer with a positive attitude. Most important, I respect the sport I play (Ice Hockey) tremendously. Academically, I understand that competitive hockey will end one day but my career will last a lot longer. A solid education is my main goal, followed by my ice hockey passion. It would be a dream come true if I can achieve a balance of both in my college years.
