As a natural outdoor enthusiast I have spent a lot of time outside. My love for the outdoors began with cross country skiing at a young age. I raced for the Manitoba Cross Country Ski Team first and then the Augustana Vikings, University of Alberta.

At university I studied a four year degree in outdoor pursuits mastering skills in canoeing, hiking, and back country skiing. From Alberta I went to spend the summers in Northern Saskatchewan where I guided and instructed canoeing for four years with Churchill River Canoe Outfitters. While the summers where packed with adventures all across northern Saskatchewan, the winters were spent back in Alberta teaching outdoor education at Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute.

Did I mention I LOVE adventure! I have roamed around parts of Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. In Canada we can boast of some of the most pristine wilderness in the world. I love the country we live in! When I am not traveling abroad I take every opportunity to explore my home country. Currently I am working at a great store and rediscovering Manitoba and all the outdoor pursuits it has to offer.

Cheers and here's to seeing you in the store for up coming adventures. Tim
