Emerson is socially conscious and believes in paying his blessings forward whenever possible. He understands how being a positive influence and having integrity can impact an outcome. His influence with the Anaheim Ducks Fan Development management team created an opportunity to get Hermosa Drive School into the i3 varsity Roller hockey league to as part of the S.C.O.R.E. Program. They are the first public school in Orange County to be accepted into this league. He's also instrumental in Hermosa receiving an outdoor hockey rink and new digital learning equipment for their learning center, both projects are sponsored by the Anaheim Ducks organization.
As a volunteer, Emerson is involved with the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, where he supported the cause by assisting with book distribution, and registration support. He’s passionate about doing his part to eliminate homelessness in Orange County and participates in the Santa Ana homeless encampment and cleanup project.
Emerson has many interests which include skateboarding, photography, drawing, music, exotic food, travel, and fishing and fashion. He’s learning Spanish and German as second languages and knows sign language. He's also a USA Hockey certified referee since 2018. His longer-term plan is to play top-level junior hockey, and God willing for a Division I college program.
