I grew up in Palm Beach Gardens playing many different sports. Anything from basketball, golf, hockey, soccer, and baseball, my brothers and I played pretty much every competitive team sport at the recreational level. My dad enjoyed hockey and would send us to Canada during some summers for camp in St. Andrews, and Prince Edward Island. When I got to high school, my school did not have a competitive hockey team so I played some club ice hockey for the local ice rink and also played in different Ice Hockey tournaments around the state. I also played high school Football for Cardinal Newman High School, in West Palm Beach, Florida. When I got to college, I wanted to remain active and played club Ice Hockey for the University of Mississippi. Currently, I have remained involved in youth sports by coaching and referring for youth organizations in Palm Beach County, playing in Men’s Ice Hockey League in West Palm, a weekly Basketball game that I play in with my friends from high school, and the occasional round of golf.
