For those who weren’t in my raft last summer, here’s my story in a couple of sentences. I was born and raised in Southern Ontario, but since the age of 17 I have been travelling and living all over the country and the world.
Two years ago I finished a diploma in outdoor adventure tourism at Algonquin College and have spent the last three summers guiding on the water. It seems that I enjoy school, however, so my current situation has me living in St John’s studying at Memorial University in the off-season.
The season of 2012 is shaping up to be a great time to be a raft guide on the Exploits. There are some big plans in the works and some big fun to be had out there, I look forward to seeing you all out on the river this summer!"
