What is you favorite thing about hockey? The atmosphere at a game. It is such as fast-paced game that the excitement level in the arena is almost tangible. I love it!!
If you could have any job that you wanted, what would it be and why? I would want to combine my love of hockey with my passion for philanthropy by working for an NHL team’s charity.
What is your favorite place to go in Los Angeles? Besides a Kings game?? … Engine 28 restaurant. My grandfather used to work there when it was still a fire station so it is a favorite spot for us.
If you could spend the day with anyone you wanted, dead or alive, who would it be and why? My grandfather who passed away from cancer five years ago. He was very instrumental in raising me and teaching me my values.
