I'm currently employed by the Regina Pats Hockey Club in the WHL as the team's Media and Communications Manager. When the season gets going, I'll join the Pats' broadcast team for all 72 Regular Season games and the playoffs.
I'm incredibly lucky to be one of the few people who get to work with a hockey orginazation. Riding a bus across Western Canada in the winter months may not be glamorous, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I graduated from SAIT's Radio Broadcasting program in April of 2010, and I started my first full-time radio job in September of the same year as the Play-by-Play voice of the La Ronge Ice Wolves and the Sports Reporter/Announcer for MBC Radio in La Ronge, Saskatchewan.
What a season to start out in media. The Ice Wolves made it pretty easy to have fun setting franchise records left, right and centre. That included Travis Eggum setting the new Ice Wolves goal mark at 58 on his amazing goal-per-game season and setting the new points mark with linemate Marc-Andre Carre at 106. In my first year I met the great people in the organizations of the SJHL and the other fantastic broadcasters around the league.
After my second year with the Ice Wolves, I had the opportunity to join the Regina Pats as their Media and Communications Manager. While it was tough to leave La Ronge and the Ice Wolves, the chance to work with such a storied franchise in the WHL was too good to pass up. Now I'm settling into a an exciting, new position filled with new challenges and learning experiences.
I'm lucky enough to have the opportunities to cover lots of great events in sports. Here are some of the highlights:
-Play-by-Play for the Bronze Medal Game of the 2009 ESSO Cup (Women's Midget Hockey National Championship)
-Play-by-Play and Colour Commentary for the SAIT Trojans' 2010 ACAC Championship run
-Play-by-Play voice of the Bronze and Gold Medal games of the 2010 CCAA Men's National Basketball Championships (SAIT finishes with Silver Medal)
-On ice interviews with Calgary Hitmen players when they won the Ed Chynoweth Cup (WHL Championship) in 2010
-Play-by-Play of the Ice Wolves 2010-2011 SJHL Championship Season
-Covering the 2012 World Junior Championships in Calgary
