Why do you love to guide/instruct?


It keeps me on my toes, continually improving my paddling skills, and allows me to meet tons of nice Folks. I love the community of paddlers we have here, and really enjoy training with my friends…and then spreading the fun to new people!


Number one item off bucket list:


I don’t have a bucket list; I’m simply living each day to my fullest capabilities; I jump for every opportunity I can, and I am always planning my next adventure and the one after that…my current adventure schemes are paddling trips to Quirpon Island, NL and Haida Gwaii, BC.
