What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

Probably COC in Montreal. For this season, I’ve decided to not go to any large-scale competitions in order to focus on my skills rather than my results. This way, I can put most of my competitive focus into those races.

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

It’s hard to pick a favourite. The most recent one that stands out is probably the 2018 NAOC relay in Yukon. Fun map and a great atmosphere.

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

Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

I try to almost convince myself that it isn’t a competition, or else I’ll put myself under too much pressure or lose focus. Instead, I treat my races as if they’re practices. That way, I can better remember what to concentrate on and execute my goals in a more stable fashion.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

Playing guitar, photography, camping, hiking, etc.
