Tell us about your music. I received a drum set from my mother and father when I was two years old and ever since then, I have always loved playing them. I love to play rock music on the drums because I enjoy playing them fast.
What is a favorite memory with your music? One of my favorite memory playing the drums was playing for a benefit three years ago. There was a huge crowd. The spotlight was on me and the people I was playing with. It was such a thrill to have everyone watch me playing and I loved the feeling.

Share with us your decision to go into welding for a career? What have you created that you are most proud of? What does your future in this look like? I chose to go into the welding field for a career because welders make a lot of money yearly and they always have different projects they work on. Something I have created while welding that I am most proud of is welding the structure of a boat dock from scratch at my job. My future in this career looks very well. I will always be learning new things and people will always need welders. There will never be a shortage of them.
Why hockey? What do love so much about it and what is a favorite accomplishment? I have played hockey since I was in Kindergarten. I like playing it so much because I enjoy being a part of a team. I also really like skating fast across the ice and trying to score goals as much as I can.
