I was corrupted by the guiding life early, I started rafting on the streams of Vancouver Island in 2005, when I was 16 years old. In 2010, I began rafting on the mainland of BC. I guided on the Fraser River and her tributaries, working my way North until I found my new home in Quesnel. In 2017, I cut my teeth on Northern Rivers with CRE. While I would never turn down a chance to try a new river, you will most likely find me on the Best of BC, Alsek and the Tatshenshini. To supplement my guiding career,
I moonlight as an Avionics Systems Engineer.
It was a busy first summer in the North, nothing feels as good as your own bed after four and a half expeditions. It was a short shoulder season for me this year, barely enough time to mow the lawn and rake the leaves before starting my winter contracts. I am once again working on heavy fire-fighting aircraft. As I write this I am in Australia, getting the fleet ready for the southern fire season. The machines will be up and running soon, and I will be able to spend the holiday season at home, focusing on important things like skiing and eating!
