Devout sports fan living on the bleak frozen prairie of Canada, though the summers get super nice (shh don't tell). When I'm not consuming information at the local knowledge repository (going to college) I can be found on the field of (Rec League Soccer) battle or attending every other Jets home game.

Started as an author with Arctic Ice Hockey in November of 2011, and became a Site Manager in February of 2012.

Wrote with the Manitoban as a Sports Reporter in the 2012-2013 school year.
