Born in Beirut, Lebanon, in September 1964, Reeves moved around a lot as a child. In fact, he enjoyed stints in Australia, America and Canada. It was during his time at college in Toronto, though, that he discovered his first real passion: ice hockey. And Reeves was soon good enough to join the school team as its goalkeeper.

Reeves’ dream fell to pieces, however, when he picked up an injury, ending his hopes of pursuing a career in the sport.
