Born and raised in Vancouver BC. My passion for sport was fuelled on by the multitude of courts, track and fields. From an early age the athletic mechanics of baseball, football, volleyball and track inspired me. Through high school I played competitive volleyball, basketball and baseball. Baseball in particular, resonated for my skill set and drive. This is the sport I felt most passionate about and the sport I chose to pursue professionally.
Competitive hockey and professional baseball were demanding and disciplined commitments which required sacrifices from an early age. Leaving home at the age of 15 to pursue my dream as a professional athlete was challenging, rewarding and ultimately satisfying.
