Grew up in Chanhassen. Hobbies include anything fitness related, camping/hiking, pickleball, reading, and movies
What do you like most about BA?
Building relationships with the students and being part of an environment that is fun while still pushing players to reach their full potential.
Why is it important to have solid academics in addition to good hockey training?
I am a big believer in the saying ‘How you do one thing is how you do everything.’ It is hard to have a lazy attitude towards academics and expect to have the drive to put in the work necessary to become an elite player. Students should push themselves to be high achievers in all areas of life.
Who was one coach/teacher that had the biggest impact on your life?
Coach Andy Brink- and I’m not just saying that because he’s now my boss!
What is your favorite hockey memory?
Playing for the Chaska association growing up.
