My athletic background includes being involved in tennis, hockey, table tennis, and of course, wrestling. I continue to be heavily involved in the sport of wrestling as a coach, referee, and now as a physiotherapist for the National Cadet/Junior Wrestling Team.
In my free time I love spending time with my beautiful wife and my amazing three children, Gabriella, Isabella and Maximus. We love traveling, watching movies and enjoy watching our kids various sporting activities and dance.
If anyone knows me, the first thing they might tell you is that I am die hard and lifelong fan of my home province’s Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays (not easy when you reside in Jets country).
