About Me


I’ve lived in Banff for seven years, in which time I have evolved from a hiker into a runner focused on minimalist style, long distance and relative speed in technical terrain. In 2017 I embraced a largely self-powered approach, accessing most of my mountain adventures via my Argon 18 road bike.
