“I got started training in 2014 when me and two of my best friends were looking for something new to try. We came across the Karate group that was coming to our school. My friends didn’t like it, but I absolutely loved it and it quickly became a passion of mine.”

Outside of Karate, he plays provincial Basketball with the Moncton Hawks Basketball Club. He also enjoy playing soccer and Ultimate Frisbee for his school.
