He was born and raised in Australia, but has an Australian father and a Canadian mother, and holds dual citizenship. He spent a few years of his childhood in Alberta, Canada.

When he was younger, he always forgot to put something important in his kit bag, so now he is an obsessive bag-checker to make sure he has everything. "First at home, before I get on the bus, when I get on the bus, and then just before getting off the bus at the field." (ritualhockey.com, 19 Mar 2016)
