Interest

I have a keen interest in experiencing new cultures and new places.  I'm constantly in awe of this place we call Earth and am fascinated with everything offered from culinary experiences to different customs and rituals to the unique landscapes and topography people call their home.  In particular, idigenous people have always inspired me, whether at home in Canada or in some remote spot around the globe, with cultures steeped so rich in language, art, music, social structures and an overall reverence for the land.

Forever intrigued by new culture and new experiences I have been fortunate enough to travel for both work and pleasure to destinations including: Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Tibet, the Arctic Circle and other remote spots in Canada.

Some of my passions include mountain biking, trekking, ice hockey; I am from Canada after all:) and anything that gets me outside and exploring.  My love of mountain biking and touring gave me a chance to explore in depth the Himalayan and Tibetan Plateau, forever instilling the wanderlust I have today.

Summary

I strive to have meaningful and collaborative relationships with my clients while maintaining a professional approach to all my work.  Clear lines of communication and the ability to find solutions when challenges surface ensure projects are finished in a timely and satisfactory manner.  Infusing skill and creative elements into my craft, guarantees each job to be unique as a standalone or shine within a series of the same theme.  I have the ability to take initiative and work independently but also thrive in a team atmosphere where the greater good of the project is best served by a combined effort.
