I grew up in Springdale and currently live in Gander, NL working as a Tourism Development Officer. I have been an avid snowmobiler all my life, from the days of getting stuck under a Ski-Doo Olympic at 4 years old, to learning to ride on the family's 1978 John Deere Spitfire, I was always fascinated with snowmobiling and it's my greatest passion. I enjoy all types of riding, but these days, I consider myself more of a technical rider and love pounding through the trees while exploring new riding areas. Sharing my rides with family and seeing the excitement as I pass my riding passion on to my Step-Daughter, Jenelle, puts a huge smile on my face. I'm very lucky to be able to ride with many of the best riders around this beautiful province, but the highlight of my riding experiences has to be having had the privilege of riding with "The Professor", Bret Rasmussen. I may not be the best rider on the mountain, but I may very well be the one having the biggest laugh and the most fun! As a contributor to Sledworthy Magazine I have written articles about snowmobile festivals, passionate industry characters, and shared some of my own tips and tricks that keep me on the snow. I look forward to providing more articles for you to enjoy this season.
