My Story

Bad Knees (too many jump crashes) has curtailed my involvement as an athlete, however I am still an active Driver, Judge and TC.
I was very fortunate to be able to drive at the 2009 World Championships at my home site Predator Bay (Calgary, AB).
My Driving Highlights have been
- Whitney McClintock - Gold Slalom and Gold Trick at the 2009 Worlds
- Driving for the 2014 - 35+ World Championships at Sunset Lakes where there was a 4 way tie for 1st with 3 @ 10.25 and then pulling Champion Frederic Halt through 10.25 with a winning score of 1 @ 9.75.
- Most recently, working with Dorien and Jaret Llewellyn on an awesome Video shoot that included sunrises, sunsets and some insane boat wrangling to get some really incredible shots.
