Before beginning a career in journalism, I represented Canada in the sport of sprint canoeing for almost 20 years. My paddling career culminated with a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I retired from paddling in 2012.
I've been delivering key notes, school talks, convocation addresses and motivation speeches to groups ranging from a classroom size to thousands since 2008.
When not at work, you'll find me outside, preferably with a paddle.
