I was very lucky to be born to adventure-loving parents in an area of Canada that offers unlimited opportunities for adventure right at your doorstep. I like to joke that I was raised in a canoe but it’s not that far from the truth. We spent every summer camping, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, fishing, portaging, and then every winter was spent on the ski hill, playing hockey on frozen ponds, strapping snowshoes to our feet and barrelling down snowy hills on flimsy toboggans. Adventure is just in my blood.

I studied Geography & Environmental Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada and have always had a passion for exploring, understanding and protecting our natural environment. After graduating I embarked on my first solo, long-term adventure by travelling Australia for a year. Since then my appetite for travel has only grown and I’ve gone on to explore Mexico, Vietnam, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Ireland, Scotland and even had some more adventures back home in Canada.

I fell in love with Scotland while visiting on a holiday in November 2017 and in early 2018 I moved my home base to Glasgow, so I could properly explore the beautiful Scottish countryside and eventually the rest of Europe as well.

My current travel goal is to see all of Scotland; slow & steady.
