I was born and raised in the Exploits Valley town of Bishop’s Falls. I currently reside in Paradise, NL with my beautiful wife Vanessa and our two kids, Shealyn and Chase. Not so long ago, when winter lasted 6 months a year in Central Newfoundland, snowmobiling became a way of life for me. I can remember riding on sled back and forth to school in the winter months once we had enough snow. My family is everything to me, and over the past few winters we have all gone on several rides together. My wife has her own sled and the kids have a small one as well so we can all go together. As my children continue to get older I hope to pass along my passion for the sport of snowmobiling and I hope they continue to enjoy the outdoors as much as I have. After years of riding the trails in central Newfoundland I finally purchased a mountain machine in 2014. The exhilaration you experience when you are busting through powder drifts being covered in waist deep snow is one that is extremely difficult to describe but make for memories that will last a lifetime. Even though there are some pretty awesome unknown spots in Central I really enjoy riding on the West Coast of Newfoundland. Over the past three years I have written articles for Sledworthy magazine, including everything from getting your kids involved in snowmobiling, to brand loyalty, to various gear review pieces. It is my hope that through these articles I have portrayed my enthusiasm for the sport as well as passed on some knowledge about the winter activity that I absolutely live for. I look forward to writing many more articles for the magazine in the future.
