About Me

Polar bear tracks in Churchill, Manitoba.

Born as a flatlander in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (yes, that’s a real place), I got into hiking via trips to the Rockies as a child, then I REALLY got into hiking when I thru-hiked the Arizona Trail as my first backpacking trip in 2013. Since the AZT, I’ve hiked the Heysen Trail and about 2/3rds of the Pacific Crest Trail, as well as many <100 kilometre trails in Canada, Australia and the United States.

In 2020, COVID-19 disrupted my travel plans and I’ve been dabbling in packrafting as a form of adventure closer to home. My plans for 2021 are dependent on when I can get vaccinated, but I look forward to getting back on the long trails!
