I enjoy many sports including playing Ice Hockey in the winter and Golf in the summer. I have coached many hockey teams over the years and enjoy that immensely. I have played guitar my entire life and enjoy playing music with my children very much. I recently became certified by MADD Canada as a Victim Services Volunteer so I can help families who have been traumatized by the effects of drinking and driving.
