As a Canadian to my core, I simply adore being in nature. Camping, biking, hiking, paddling, skiing – you name it. If it can be done outside, chances are I love doing it! I enjoy ultimate frisbee, playing guitar and exploring the history of ideas. Everyday I strive to live an adventurous life and building an online business is now a big part of that adventure. Working on the Be a Better Guide Project with my incredible wife Sarah enables us to continue to explore the world. I love coaching, mentoring and inspiring others, and I am always up for making new friends.
