ABOUT ME

I'm a sociable, laid back guy who loves the outdoors. I've ben working in the mining industry for the past 3 years but now I'm going back to school at UBC in Kelowna in the fall. Pictures are from Della falls, backcountry Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Explored an ice cave in Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau Alaska, this is definitely the highlight out of many amazing adventures and destinations all over North America and some beyond.

Teach, Learn, Share

Think about the goods you buy... most people would be shocked as to the amount of energy and material goes into something as small as a smartphone. A recent mine I was at produces 0.3 grams or less of gold per 1000kg of rock processed. That means there is over 100kg of rock in your smartphone, just for the minute amount of gold used in the circuitry. Many other types of mines produce less than 1kg of metal (ie, copper, silver, nickel, zinc, etc) for 1000kg processed. Reuse, Recycle!!
