More About Me

Aside from writing code, these are some of the things I enjoy doing in my spare time.

Hockey Picture

I love playing sports with friends, like hockey and golf. I've been apart of various beer-league teams since moving to Winnipeg.

I enjoy playing various video games, including Call of Duty and Minecraft. I use Minecraft as a means to spend time with younger family members that live in other provinces. I also recently joined the U of M Minecraft Club as an Alumnus to connect with current students.

Driving my friends boat

I love spending a relaxing weekend at the lake with my friends. Going wakeboarding and talking around the fire is a great way to wind down after a busy week.
