I live on farm-woodlot in rural New Brunswick, Canada with my wife Rebecca and our 4 children.  I am a forestry professional (ecologist-silviculturalist) with 20 years work experience (I was a professional logger/faller for more than 10 years).  My outdoor interests are very wide from sailing and canoeing ,to mountain biking, to alpine and xcountry skiing.  My true passion is being out- off-trail in forests and mountains- either with a muti-day pack/hike; or with my backcountry skis on.  I lived in BC for 4 years where I did a fair bit of backcountry alpine skiing.  My everyday skiing in New Brunswick and Quebec is off-trail xcountry/light telemark (i.e. stride and glide with burly xcountry boots and XCD skis).  If I had to pick my favourite activity it would have to be a cold, clear winter morning, with lots of fresh snow to stride through.  Although I am comfortable in alpine ski gear- nordic skiing is my true passion.
