Mountain guide and climber; numerous first ascents of rock and ice in Canada and around the world; demonstrated ice climbing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
One of my professors in the University of Calgary outdoor pursuits program was Bruce Hendricks, an excellent athlete and ice climber. He was a great educator and the one person who really inspired me to follow this path. But wilderness is my number-one inspiration. I love being in nature and big beautiful places. I love looking at a line in the mountains and then trying to put it all together. I love the physical movement of rock climbing, the adventure of the challenge.
