WHEN / HOW YOU STARTED PLAYING 

I started working at a bar that the Edmonton Foosball League runs out of in 2011, and met Will Stranks who taught me to play foosball. Once I learned how to shoot the ball really hard I wanted to keep playing. I started to learn the mental aspects of foosball after that and loved figuring out opponents shots and tendencies . The mental part of foosball is my favourite thing about the game and what really drew me into playing. There’s nothing better than getting into someone’s head.

HOW THAT LED TO TOURNAMENT PLAY 

I went to the World Cup to watch the men’s team play, and after meeting them and seeing what playing foosball could possibly become I decided I wanted to travel to tournaments.
Sometimes people ask me, “Do you still love foosball? After all this time?” ….Always

WHAT YOU DO OUTSIDE OF FOOSBALL

My main passions outside of foosball are making art, and spending time playing with my Rottweiler named Luna.
