Neil called me up 10 years ago when a last minute spot opened up for a guide. I was owed a break from my canoe instructors job and I stepped into a dream world on the Nahanni. I have never looked back. The next ten years have taken me around the world to incredible rivers, but I love getting back to the pristine wilderness and dramatic scenery of the north.

When not guiding, I manage an outdoor education centre in the foothills of the Rockies. I know – it’s a tough life.
