I’ve had the privilege of guiding canoe and sea kayak trips for Black Feather for almost 2 decades. I’ve guided rivers and lakes in Ontario, Quebec, Northern BC, Nunavut, NWT and the Yukon. My personal passion for the outdoors began early, camping on Georgian Bay. Competitive whitewater kayaking in my youth led me to explore many adventures on several continents – hiking, cross country skiing, biking, canoeing, whitewater and sea kayaking. On trips you are likely to see me with a camera in hand, or on my hands and knees with a book, wondering and sharing about the local flora, fauna and geology of new landscapes. My favourite things about guiding: watching the group become cohesive, teaching and learning new skills, rising to the occasion with challenges, and enjoying stories and good food around the campfire. When I’m not guiding I love to putter in my garden, photograph, read, hike, paddle, ski and dream of upcoming trips.
