Firstly, we would like to clarify that this guy is not Dion Phaneuf, the defenceman for the LA Kings. It’s just his doppelgänger. Nathan hears this on the regular and if you meet Nathan in person, the similarities are eerie!
His life path didn’t lead him to the NHL but close enough. It took him to Niagara College instead, where he earned his diploma in Business - Sales and Marketing and won the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association National Scholar Award for excellence in athletics and academics. After graduating, Nathan was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to live and work in Sydney, Australia. Without hesitation, he packed his bags and flew off to the Down Under with his girlfriend, Kerissa. After five years of barbecuing, beaching and loving the Aussie life, he decided it was time to boomerang back to Niagara to start a family. Kerissa and Nathan are now married and have two beautiful daughters.
Nathan is a self-confessed sports nut. He can often be found playing sports, watching sports and talking about sports, sometimes all at the same time! He also hits the gym on the regular, enjoys live, acoustic concerts and has a healthy fear of heights.
