Proudest Orienteering Achievment
Representing Canada is always a very special experience. I was most proud of the first time I qualified for a final in 8th in my heat. Another highlight was finishing my competitive career off with a strong result in the Lausanne Sprint Final.

What is your first orienteering memory?
Going to a local meet in Little Mountain Park, near Winnipeg.

What is your favourite orienteering story or experience?
Traveling to places I never would have discovered otherwise is incredible. Deserts in the US, mountains in Switzerland and tiny parks in Victoria, BC are.

Is there a particular map/area where you could never get tired of orienteering?
Bow Valley in Alberta

If you could go anywhere in the world to orienteer, where would you go, and why?
I’ve got Croatia on the top of my bucket list.

If you could get orienteering coaching from anyone in the world (dead or alive) who would it be, and why?
Ted de St Croix. He always has something wise to say if you listen.

Aside from orienteering, what other sports do you do on a regular basis?
The occasional trail and road running race. Squash for fun.

Please tell us a bit about your coaching philosophy?
Use fundamental training philosophies and principles to educate athletes about what they need to do to become better.

Tell us something that we might not know about you…
I occasionally play the guitar and am working on my Avett Brothers repertoire.
