(Jasper, Alberta, Canada)  
Me at Scott Glacier
I grew up in Eastern Canada. I was fortunate to have been able to start hiking at a young age. At the age of eight I was already hiking in the wilds of Ontario and Quebec. I climbed my first mountain, Mount Washington N.H. at the age of ten. I moved to Jasper in 1976 at the age of 20. I have spent the last 33 years hiking in and around Jasper and Banff and The Willmore with a special love for the eastern slopes. My love of trekking and of wildlife has taken me all over the world. I have trekked and climbed in the Himalaya, Africa, South America and South East Asia. These days I find myself seeking the quieter, less travelled areas of the Rockies.
