I am 19 years old, born and raised in Kelowna, BC. I currently attend UBC and am in the progress of completing my International Relations Degree with the intention of earning a Master’s in Journalism. My sports background extends into my childhood; I began playing hockey at 4 years old and played competitively until I was 18. I have also spent a large portion of my life playing competitive golf, baseball, football, and soccer as well as other sports recreationally. I have been working for BC Hockey as an official for 8 years and I continue to do so, reffing levels as high up to AAA Midget. For Canucks fans, I write a blog which follows the team. You can find my page by clicking the link here. As a journalist my goal is to provide readers with passionate, opinionated and statistically backed content with the hopes of sharing my appreciation of sports with you.
