Which of your 2015 results are you most proud of and why?
I didn’t have any outstanding races this season.
Which race/races are you most excited about for 2016?
I am really excited for NAOC this year because last time I attended I had an amazing time racing and getting to know the orienteers from the U.S.
Where is your favourite place to orienteer in Canada?
I don’t have a favorite but a few memorable ones are racing at Hopewell Rocks in NB, Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver and Lewes Lake in Whitehorse.
What race/event is on your orienteering bucket list?
I have always wanted to go to O-Ringen, Jukola and 5-days Istanbul.
What do you like to do when you aren’t orienteering? Tell us about one or more of your hobbies/activities.
I love to ski (any type), play soccer, running and board games
What are some of your 2016 goals outside of orienteering?
I am trying to become a certified tech on skis
What’s your favourite orienteering discipline and why?
I really like middle distance because of how technically challenging it is and I like running a middle distance.
Tell us about other ways you are involved in orienteering (eg, coaching, mapping, organizing events…)
This previous season I wasn’t that involved besides racing and training. This year I am planning on helping with the junior program.
What tip would you give a beginner or intermediate orienteer?
Listen to what your coach is trying to explain. They are explaining it to you for a reason
Describe one of your favourite training exercises.
I really like Dice-O. Any one can win! You have 2 dice and you roll and whatever numbers you roll those are the controls you go to even if you roll a number more then once you still have to go to it. The person that wins is the one who gets all the controls first.
