Canmore has been home for me for the last five years, but even while living in other places in Alberta, the mountains were always calling. Day trips from Edmonton for skiing hiking, camping or rock climbing were pretty common. Now that I have the privilege to call the Bow Valley home, my perspective has shifted a bit. I'm still up for a ski, ride, hike or even climb, but today it's more about helping facilitate other people's mountain experiences. I love to take visiting friends and family out to some of my favourite spots, capture beauty as best I can though a camera lens, and most of all it's helping and watching my two kids grow in their love for this place and the outdoors
