In Own Words:
After being a competitive junior curler in southern Ontario, I moved to Montreal in 1986 to attend McGill University. At the age of 20, I was fortunate enough to play lead on a men's team that won the province and represented Quebec in the 1988 Brier. Looking back, I was probably too young to appreciate it.[cr][lf][cr][lf]I moved to the United States in 1991 (I became a U.S. citizen in 2000) and until this season, life and location kept me away from curling. In August 2006, however, I moved to New Jersey and resumed curling at a high level again. In 2012, my team, skipped by Heath McCormick, captured the United States Men's National Championship, going undefeated through the playdowns and the national championship. [cr][lf][cr][lf]In June of 2005, I started a podcast called The Curling Show at www.thecurlingshow.com. It features interviews with the sport's top athletes and the people who shape the game. I also co-wrote Fit to Curl: A Sport-Specific Guide to Training with John Morris of Team Martin — the book has sold 5,000 copies since it was published in 2009.
