What is your career highlight to date?
.

Who was influential in your curling development?
Tom and Kathy Richardson, who were very involved with the junior curling program in Nanaimo, BC. Also Craig McRae and Gord Koster, who were the first to invite me to play on a mens team while I was still a junior, and who drilled home the importance of on-ice etiquette.

I've learned the importance of stretching well before I play...

Most memorable curling experience?
The 1992 Men's Spiel in Wakkanai, Japan, was played in an unheated building while the outdoor temperature was about -20C, resulting in indoor, natural ice. The building had three sheets of ice that differed in length by about 10 feet, making draw weight a challenge when moving from sheet to sheet throughout the event...

Can play the bagpipe, recite the alphabet backwards, touch my nose with my tongue...
