About Me


Découvrir les paysages et la culture francaise.


I'm a fairly intense person in the things that I choose to do. I'm focused, thoughtful, and sensitive. I have really strong creative urges that drive me; either to make films, write, or move through beautiful and challenging parts of the earth. I'm a vegetarian, and a pretty good vegetarian cook at that. I have a pretty unique sense of humour (though I guess probably most people would say that about themselves). I love play music, listen to music, to be around creative and inspiring people, and I hope to leave some kind of mark on the world.


Skiing, ski mountaineering, mountain biking, climbing, hiking, surfing, cinema, music, playing music, literature, poetry, writing, working with my hands, building things, inventing things, meeting people, traveling, speaking more than one language, eating out, cooking, sitting in cafes, swimming, singing, bullshitting, and learning, and anything else that ends with "ing."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been to the top of countless snowy peaks in Canada, France, and New Zealand; I've skied amazing descents; I've climbed amazing ascents; I've built mountain bike trails that thousands of people have enjoyed; I've won and judged ski competitions; had pictures of me published in ski magazines; written articles in magazines; been the editor of magazines; written songs; had other incredible musicians sing and play my songs; made music videos for incredible musicians; made a feature length documentary that won an award; ridden my bike through some of the most beautiful forests in the world; surfed in glacial rivers; surfed in temperate rain forests; I've planted half a million trees in my life; I've built lots of crazy and unique things; recovered from big injuries; walked long distances; hitch hiked long distances; I've seen the northern lights in bright red; I've never stopped moving and trying new things.
