Personal Update


I usually don't make this site about me. I like to focus on the game itself, and I value serious topics that other people can relate to themselves. Thus I won't tell you about every club practice, my trips to the grocery store or anything of that nature unless it may make you laugh/learn.

I'm taking an 8 month position with the Canadian Olympic Committee starting tomorrow, focusing on Olympic Games Preparaton regarding the Bejing Olympics. I'll still be working on contracts with the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance and the Canada Games Council. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about the new opportunity. It might open many doors.

I am also happy to say that I've accepted an invitation to join the Board of Directors for the Canadian Ultimate Players Association. I will go on record as saying that our national body has failed to organize and develop our sport as well as it possibly could. We have a new executive director and there appears to be a desire for change. I hope to help CUPA change the way things are done, so that it can work harder and smarter, and we can develop ultimate, build stakeholder relations, and make CUPA much stronger.
