Donjek Glacier, Kluane 2008
I grew up in Langley, B.C. and have always really had an appreciation for the outdoors. I spent about 10 years in Boy Scouts and through that was first introduced to climbing at the age of 13. From there I started getting interested in mountains and began to explore mountains around the Fraser Valley. Up until I went to university I was unaware that a climbing community existed outside of my friend group and the occasional people we would bump in to. I went to UBC in 1995 and became involved with the Varsity Outdoor Club. At this time I also stumbled across the university collection of Canadian Alpine Journals and maps of the country. These fuelled my interest into more of a passion. I switched programs from engineering and finished a degree in geomorphology. I have come to the realization that Canada has some of the most incredible wilderness and mountains in the world and I now enjoy exploring those wonderful places. I am currently working as a hydrologist for the provincial government and am an active member of the Vancouver Island Section of the Alpine Club of Canada
