My whole life I wanted to be a professional hockey player. I grew up in the St. James area of Winnipeg, Manitoba and honestly can’t remember a life where hockey wasn’t my primary focus. From an early age I fell in love with the game, and that has never changed throughout my junior, collegiate, and finally my short-lived professional career
When I began playing at the collegiate level with the University of Manitoba, I realized that my dreams of making a living playing this game were nearing an end. It was during this time that I needed to answer a question no hockey player dreams of answering – what am I going to do after hockey?
