Why do you love the game of basketball?
I love basketball because of what it represents to my relationship with my brother and father growing up. Basketball always served as a conduit for us three to spend time together and to grow our relationship, and knowing that as we got older there would be less time together, we knew that basketball would always be there serving as a reminder of time well spent together. It's an outlet for our frustration, an escape for our problems, and something that just gives me pure joy when I play.
What has the best part about working at Union been?
The best part about working at Union has probably been seeing how small and wholesome the basketball community in Vancouver is. I've seen a lot of familiar faces walk through the door and have met many new ones as well. Knowing that we all have a common love for a beautiful game, and seeing the community slowly grow with social media runs and club team practices, open gyms and private rentals alike, has been a true joy to watch.
What do you hope people get out of their visit to Union?
I just hope that they get the same sense of excitement as I did the first time I walked in and used the facility, everytime they come through the doors.
