1. What’s some­thing you like or do that peo­ple wouldn’t ex­pect?

I en­joy play­ing gui­tar and PlayS­ta­tion when I get some free time. Big into sports, es­pe­cially hockey — both ice and ball.

2. What’s some­thing that’s com­mon knowl­edge in your field of work you wish every­one else knew?

Seat­belts save lives and im­paired driv­ing is im­paired no mat­ter what it is you’re driv­ing.

3. If you were the ab­so­lute monarch of your com­mu­nity, what’s the one rule you would make every­one fol­low?

No bul­ly­ing. Be kind to each other.

4. What was your first job and what did you learn from it?

Coach­ing sum­mer hockey/ goalie camps when I was a teenager. I learned how valu­able it is to pass your knowl­edge on to oth­ers and the im­por­tance of be­ing able to do some­thing you love and get paid for it.

5. What’s some­thing that will al­ways be in fash­ion, no mat­ter how much time passes?

Cargo shorts/pants. And they’re prac­ti­cal! Ha ha.

6. What’s the most ex­pen­sive/em­bar­rass­ing thing you have ever bro­ken?

My nose...four times...

7. What’s the big­gest is­sue fac­ing your com­mu­nity?

I’ll have to get back to you once I’m there for a while!

8. If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

I would’ve worked harder to fur­ther my hockey ca­reer but I try to never re­gret the past as it’s made me who I am to­day. Fo­cus on the fu­ture in­stead.

9. What’s some­thing most peo­ple don’t worry about, but they re­ally should?

Pre­par­ing for the fu­ture. You never know when you’ll have a rainy day.

10. What’s the best thing about your com­mu­nity?

Al­though I haven’t worked there yet I can an­swer this one. Like ev­ery­where else in N.L.: the peo­ple!
