About

Photo: Rein Cabalquinto

I’m a Transconian and a retired athlete.

In April 2019 I finished my 18th season of competitive hockey, spending the last three years with the Transcona Railer Express.

Off the ice, I am a marketing specialist for Cobra Enterprises, a national fabric building (Cobra Structures) and container home (Bison Container Homes) provider. I also write game previews for Sports Interaction, showcasing my sports betting knowledge.

In May 2020 I graduated from the Creative Communications program at Red River College and the joint communications program at the University of Winnipeg. I hold a Creative Communications diploma from Red River College and a four-year Bachelor of Arts in communications from the University of Winnipeg.

I look at life with a glass-half-full perspective, trying to make every day a good day.
