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, East Coast 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 began dabbling in packrafting as a form of adventure closer to home. In 2021, I managed to get back on the trail with an East Coast Trail thru-hike. I hope to have lots of fun in 2022!
