My love of adventure was fueled at a young age with my parents constantly telling me to go play outside so I would stop bugging them. This - paired with canoe trips in Temagami - was a perfect recipe for me to follow my passion of being outdoors into a full-time career.
While attending Laurentian University I worked summers leading youth on canoe trips in Algonquin, Killarney, Massassauga, and Whiteshell Park. I introduced them to the world I love and hopefully instilled an addiction to fresh air and adventure. Teaching in an outdoor setting, whether it be how to build a fire or wetland ecology, is something I aspire to share with anyone I bring into the outdoors.
