Q: What motivates you?
A: New challenges. Throughout my life and career, I have sought out opportunities that have forced me outside of my comfort zone and I enjoy those experiences the most.
Q: If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be?
A: I have always had an admiration for Wayne Gretzky and his approach to his sport. He was at the top of his profession, but he always seemed eager to learn and improve.
Q: What do you enjoy about living in Northern Ontario?
A: The ability to enjoy everything the area has to offer. In the summer, it is sitting by the lake or casting a line when the opportunity arises. In the winter, it's skating on an outdoor rink or lake.
Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?
A: My dreams revolved playing professional hockey. However, at an early age, I realized my ability to work with people was much better than my slapshot.
Q: What makes you happy?
A: The simple things in life make me the happiest. A walk with my wife, a meal with my family, and drinks and laughs with my close friends manage to keep me happy in life.
