Tell us how you became involved with the Combat family?
I started with Combat in 2006. Neil, who was working for Combat Canada offered me a chance for sponsorship. That was the best move in my slow pitch career because that opened a ton of doors. I've had the chance to assist in developing many successful Canadian programs such Demo Days, Clinics, etc.
