What do you hope to accomplish this summer with the Marlins?
I'm looking forward to my fourth summer coaching with the Marlins, and my third as Head Coach. Basically, I want to help our swimmers achieve better results both individually and as a team at Regionals and Provincials the end of the season. What that will take is getting more of our swimmers attending meets and being enthusiastic about racing, training, and improving. I want to help all swimmers, from the Minis to the Seniors, commit to challenging themselves while having a lot of fun along the way.

What is your best swimming memory?

My favourite (collective) memory of swimming is training and coaching at outdoor pools throughout the summers.

If you had one super power, what would it be and why?
Shapeshifting: it lets you do most of what every other superpower can do!

What is your favourite quote or saying?
I like the seemingly redundant stuff that holds extra meaning, like "you don't know until you know".
