I just like being outdoors!

I am just a person who enjoys the outdoors and photography. I love Western Newfoundland, especially Corner Brook and Gros Morne National Park. I don’t normally go around looking for things to photograph, but my camera is usually not that far away when I am out hiking, walking, skiing, snowshoeing, or wandering aimlessly in nature. I love a good cup of coffee and not that bog water from the large national drive-thru coffee franchises, although they will do when I am desperate for a fix. I don’t really have any formal photography training, but I did have dreams of being a physicist, so I took some optics classes. After some modern physics lectures, however, I realized I didn’t care what way electrons spun, and decided to complete a commerce degree. I live in the wonderful City of Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada but love to travel. I have also recently completed my MBA and hope to put this new knowledge to the test. My biggest weakness other than spelling is my fear of skydiving.

I have a passion for outdoor sports, having competed numerous times at the National Cross Country Ski Championships and as an age grouper at the World Triathlon Championships. Since I have grown up a little bit, I enjoy coaching skiing and have coached at both the World University Games and Youth Olympics with Team Canada. I also love taking part in triathlons. I am a CBC radio junkie and read the Globe and Mail and a few technology blogs online. I love to follow the technology trends, but tend not to be the first person to have any new tech toys.

My favorite things to photograph are icebergs, caribou, eagles and of course, the beautiful landscapes of Western Newfoundland. From Port Aux Basques to L’Anse aux Meadows, I have photographed most corners and will continue to do so.

Hope you enjoy my photos and come back often,
