As a born and raised Albertan, I have spent considerable time living in both Edmonton and Calgary completing a Bachelor of Biological Science in 2013 and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2019 at the University of Alberta. I also spent 2014 and 2015 studying Kinesiology at the University of Calgary.
Since the summer of 1999 I have trained and competed in ITF style Taekwondo. After earning my blackbelt at the age of 16, I spent a number of years teaching Taekwondo to people of all ages and abilities. I was fortunate to be selected for the U-21 men’s team representing Canada at the 2007 ITF World Taekwondo Championships in Birmingham, England where we took home silver in sparring and bronze in board breaking. The best part of martial arts to me is the always-present goal of attaining your next belt while at the same time noticing yourself become stronger in all aspects of your life.
Throughout the years of playing competitive football, from peewee to the highschool/midget level, and training in Taekwondo, I had endured a number of sports related injuries that were rehabbed successfully thanks to Physiotherapy. My personal experience with the profession drove me to pursue a career in Physiotherapy and the rest as they say, is history.
Outside of the dojang and the clinic you can find me skiing the beautiful Rockies, trying to better my golf game at the links or attending board game nights with my friends.
