  • Q: How did you get into golf?

    Both my parents are golf instructors, so ever since I was little, I used to go to the golf range after school and hit a couple golf balls for fun. Ever since then, I have loved the game.

  • Q: What is something most people don’t know about you? Any hidden talents?

    A thing that most people don’t know about me is that I have a passion for art. Although it’s not something that I take super seriously, I enjoy being able to take something from my imaginations and be able to bring it to life.

  • Q: What is the best thing about your hometown?

    My hometown of Coquitlam, is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. It is surrounded by mountains, the ocean, and as a bonus, plenty of golf courses. It is a blessing to be able to live in Coquitlam and in BC because of the abundance of nature.

  • Q: Do you have any superstitions?

    I’m not the most superstitious person, but when it comes to golf, I always have two tees in my pocket and I always use my ball mark that has the same design as my spider x putter.

  • Q: If you could have a walk-up song on the first tee box, what would it be?

    “Siren” by Homieduel.
