What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

The long distance race at the World Orienteering Championships – it’s the one I’m training for.

What is your favorite orienteering event that you have done so far?

The 2016 World University Orienteering Championship Sprint at Lillafured. The tiered garden with impassable wall made it feel like orienteering in a maze.

Which map in Canada do you think all orienteers have to try at least once?

The Cypress River Sandhill map in Manitoba is a fun but challenging map that’s entirely, contours, yellow + green.  Since the 2017 Western Canadian Orienteering Championships were criminally under attended, a lot of Canadian orienteers have yet to experience this unique terrain.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

The reviewing old maps of the race area and planning course on them. That said, my most important race prep is ensuring I get enough sleep in the weeks leading up to the competition. It’s very helpful to start a race rested and healthy.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

I play board games every chance I get, and went to my first board game convention this year.

I read 50+ books a year ( mostly Sci-Fi and Fantasy) and listen to a bunch of nerdy voice actors play Dungeons and Dragons via the Critical Role podcast.
