- Who was your wrestling idol growing up? – I don’t think I ever had one particular wrestling idol growing up, when I first moved to Montreal I was really impressed and excited to train at a club with big names like Gia Sissaouri, George St. Perrie, Martine Dugrenier, David Zilberman and our home town Olympian David Tremblay. All these athletes were people I looked up to.
- Do you have a pre match routine? – My pre match routine is basically a structured warm up and music a playlist I only listen too on match day. I also like to do a couple knee drags when I first get on the mat.
- Favorite wrestling moment of your career so far? – Making the Olympic team
- Best event you have taken part in? – There have been so many good events in my career but I would say either the commonwealth games in Australia or the University games in Russia. I’ve always enjoyed the games atmosphere.
- Advice for the next generation of wrestlers? – My best piece of advice would be, to remember that learning is a process and if you stay focused and dedicated on yourself and what you need to improve then the results will follow.
