I am fortunate to have grown up in California after the time that hockey became popular in the state. I fell in love with hockey attending Anaheim Ducks games and watching their Stanley Cup run in ‘07. Sports have always been in my life because my family enjoys going to sporting events and following the four major sports. Without sports, we would not be as close as we are with them in our lives. Being able to bring all types of people together to watch a game is a powerful aspect that I love. I am thankful that my family introduced me to something that would later turn into a passion.
