I exist outdoors

... as much as possible.

By engaging and connecting with the natural world around us, we understand ourselves.

The following are a few examples of how I participate.


I ride bikes.

A lot.

Nothing makes me feel more free and independent than travelling on a bicycle. I ride road bikes, mountain bikes, cyclecross, fat bikes, fixies, and everything in between. I have cycle toured across Canada, in the United States, Scotland and England.
I have averaged over 7200km per year for the previous 5 years, and I don't plan on slowing down. Follow the link to my Strava account because I'd love to see where you ride too.


I run my own business.

It sounds more glamorous than it is.

I am a contractor & consultant providing geospatial products and services.
If you're curious to see what that actually looks like, head on over to my business website.


I sail boats.

I sail sailboats.

Time on the water is magical. It is a whole different force of nature out there, one that I really enjoy.
I've been building my sea miles with offshore passages and yacht deliveries. I am STCW certified, and am working towards my Yachtmaster ticket.
I have accrued over 10,000 bluewater miles, and I believe this is just the beginning of something bigger.


I am a Submersible Pilot

In Antarctica

... and the Mediterranean, and Norway. I have pilotted, maintained, diagnosed, and fixed subs in an expedition tourism setting. My attention to detail and technical know-how lends itself to this type of operation.

I contribute to OpenStreetMap

Because information is meant to be shared

I believe strongly in open source software and open data. The Open Street Map project is the perfect example of democratized data. Anyone can contribute, and anyone can use it. I use and contribute both personally and professionally.
