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!
