Background – I am originally from Victoria B.C., the land of gentle winters, Birkenstocks, and most likely your grandparents. After graduating from university I found my way to the oilsands in the frozen north of Alberta where I developed into a “true*” Canadian. A few more stops here and there across the country and I am now a happy resident of Calgary. With a growing young family my current hobbies consist of keeping my head above water and anything to do with Disney. That being said, having been raised in a construction family, I usually have some kind of home reno or construction project on the go. Being recent residents of Calgary, my family and I attempt to take advantage of all the city offers, including the fantastic bike trials and the zoo.
