About myself:

I have been very lucky to have seen a lot of the world in the last few years. I have been even more fortunate to have a lot of friends and family supporting me 100%. I enjoy multiple sports on various levels. I believe if kids and people are active in sports, it will only compliment them in making the right choices in life. Im very excited to be on team JK. I feel we hold a lot of similarities in multiple aspects that will only compliment our goals and dreams! Im looking forward to a super fun season being a part of team JK. See you all on the river!
