Most influential person in curling: George Godfrey. Also, all the names that adorn the flags of the MCC.....

Earliest curling memory: Winning my first 14 or 15 games in a row and thinking how easy it was and that I knew it all, (typical new lead).

Best advise: Always have fun, it rubs off on your teammates. Practice without a plan is not practice; second shot is good defense. Don't worry about trying to be great, just try to be consistently good. Curlers are family.
