Biography
In Own Words:
I was introduced to curling at age 14. My invitation to the Winnipeg Jets tryout got lost in the mail so I decided to give the sport a try reluctantly. I was lucky to be a part of a team that played for 6 years of junior together. At that age I played for the love of the competition and have stuck with it ever since. I am very fortunate to have traveled the world and have met many lifelong friends through the sport.
