Throttle Therapy

It's been over 10 years since I've twisted a throttle. Messing around on a dirt bike was routine for me in my younger years. It was a loop of crashing and calling my mom to take me for stitches, understanding zero about the mechanics of a bike and riding with virtually no protective equipment -... Continue Reading →

Why I Quit My Dream Job

As I place my Stetson hat back on my cubby hook for the very last time, I ponder two things: How did I get to this point; when did this become an imaginable option? If the paid stewards of our protected areas feel at a loss, what is left to do? Going into my 5th... Continue Reading →

Where The Mountain Beavers Roam

Ah, the Lillooet river - So majestic and serene. If you've ever been to Pemberton BC, you can't help but notice the powerful, green river that flows through the valley. It captures your attention immediately and all you can think about is being surrounded by its natural beauty. Recently my partner, Pearce and I, were... Continue Reading →

A Tantalizing Engagement

For as long as I can remember, I've been in love with the mountains. I've loved the way they make me feel so "human" when I'm playing in them. They remind me of my strengths and weaknesses. They lift up my spirit and I desire them deeply when away. They have challenged, encouraged and built... Continue Reading →

Mind of an Athlete, Life of an Amateur

Except for that one week in January...when the Polar Vortex makes it's way through our coastal towns and into every layer of clothing. This past weekend I was up at a backcountry lodge, where the lows... Continue Reading →

It’s basically broken down into: strangers, looking at photos of strangers, wishing for likes and comments from strangers. And inevitably, most of those strangers end up... Continue Reading →

Getting Here

It’s no secret that I’ve been pushing the fitness envelope pretty hard in the last year.  Between hours spent in the gym with new routines, training programs and diet changes, I’ve been yielding some pretty exciting results! And to my surprise, people have been psyched for me! Not only have they been enthusiastic with my... Continue Reading →

A Different Kind Of Beautiful

I've heard "On-terrible" more than once in my lifetime. It's a pretty common phrase among people my age born or now living in British Columbia. I've always heard it accompanied by "so boring", "bland" or "not worth it", when referring to the province of Ontario. I had never visited the other side of Canada. I... Continue Reading →
