I’m Mark, and I am an educational professional with 29 years of high school teaching experience in Ontario. I also instruct Paddle Canada and O.R.C.K.A. Moving Water courses when not guiding. I a passionate about teaching and learning so I endeavor to bring that to my work on the river every day. One of my favourite things about being a guide is the camaraderie that is shared by a group; paddling and living together in the wilderness. When I’m not working on the water, I love spending time with my wife, three children and my dog. During the seasons of ice and snow, you can find me pursuing Nordic activities in the form of cross-country and telemark skiing.
