Standing on the shoulders of giants
I've been training for mountain sports since 1999.
Over that time, I've designed a system that combines the best ideas from the best coaches in a variety of sports.

In 1999, I left a yellow-brick-road future and moved into a Honda Civic so I could climb full-time. Fifteen years later, I started skimo racing.
I was a sponsored alpine climber in the 2000s, a member of the Canadian National Skimo Team in the 2010s, and a coach at Uphill Athlete starting in 2019.
