Born and raised in the Halifax area, grew up playing football in the Halifax area starting with Minor Football with the North West Nighthawks Association. Moved on to play at Halifax West High School, where I was part of a Provincial Championship in 1991. I then joined St Pats High for an enjoyable season. I was a member of the Provincial Team in 93 and 94. Following high school, I played in the senior mens league with the Halifax Buccaneers winning 2 championships. I then moved on to play a year at SMU, followed by 3 years for the Acadia Axeman where I enjoyed playing corner and returning kicks, and studying Kinesiology. This was followed by 5 seasons in the MFL for the Dartmouth Knights, winning a championship my final season.
Enjoyed 3 years as head coach with the BSMF program coaching at the mites, and Atom level. I still help when possible with the Atom team. As a coach, I strongly believe in the importance of giving back to the game, that has given me so much.
