Where are you from?

Madison, Wisconsin

What is your background in the sport of hockey?

I played hockey in Madison, I played hockey at Colorado College, I played in Germany for five years, and that’s the extent of my playing career.

How many years have you coached CC Hockey?

15 years

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy the competition week in and week out. I enjoy working with bright, intelligent CC-type kids, and I enjoy living in Colorado Springs.

What is the most memorable moment of your coaching career?

Any win against Denver.

What has been the highlight of the season thus far?

Well it’s been a little bit of a tough season. I would say… you know what… last weekend when we had a nice 3-0 win against Western Michigan and a 4-4 tie on Friday. That was a pretty complete weekend for us.

What makes the CC vs. DU rivalry so special?

Since 1949, we’ve competed against each other. Two private schools on the front range. Two very competitive programs. 290 meetings. Just the natural competition between the two schools.

What are your expectations going into the last few weeks of the season?

I think just to be playing the best hockey of the year down the stretch. To play a little bit of a spoiler role. To pick up a few more wins and just keep improving as a team.

Who is your favorite professional athlete?

You know what… that’s a good question. I would probably say somebody like Phil Mickelson, a mentally strong, talented golfer, gracious in both victory and defeat.

What do you like to do outside of hockey?

I like to hike. I’m a hiker. I spend my summers in the Collegiate Peaks a lot. Hiking and a little bit of golf.
