About Me


see the world!


I like to work a little and travel a lot. I work as a hiking guide in the Canadian Rockies for the summer and travel, surf and snowboard the rest of the year. I'm always interested to meet new people, go new places and try new things. The past few years I have spent lots of time traveling and the more I do the more I want to. For me traveling is the most mind expanding, adventurous, humbling, scary, liberating, interesting and fun way to live


life is for living!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen and done so many amazing things its hard to pick one. Most recently I worked at a remote helicopter access only mountaineering camp in the canadian wilderness surrounded by glaciers. The scenery was stunning!

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning new languages and experiencing different cultures for me has been the best education. It has opened the door for work opportunities, its taught me more compassion and acceptance. Its given me self confidence and at times and also been extremely humbling.
