Avocations and Hobbies

Like any good Canadian, hockey is a passion of mine; I played throughout my childhood and continue to play in a intramural league today. Since the beginning of the pandemic I’ve grown quite a green thumb; my proudest achievement being keeping my petra croton alive through six moves in three years. I am also a die-hard rain, sun, or snow cyclist; the age of the automobile is over!
