"The unexpected, facing my fears and a way to get connected with and appreciate the nature and environment that feeds us and provides life is what motivates me."
A love for snowboarding that started in Quebec from 11 years old which led to a mountain pursuit for a living for the last 15 years, based out of beautiful British Columbia as a new home. A love for the mountains combined with grassroots activism to protect our precious and beloved playgrounds and backyards is what fuels me.

What are you doing to make a difference?
I have a technical degree in Applied and Ecology and as someone who benefits so much from Nature, I have made a point over the last few years to stand up the bets I can to help protect it via grassroots activisms, fundraising, creating events such as the WestCoast Triple Plank and taking action the best I can to help make a difference.

I built my own home (with lots of help!) out of cob and sustainable materials which I live in on Vancouver Island.
I spend my winters in the mountains in BC so I am lucky to have made it possible to get the best of both works between Mountains the Ocean, my two favourite places.
