Warriors of light frequently ask themselves what they are doing here. Very often they believe their lives have no meaning. That is why they are warriors of light. Because they make mistakes. Because they ask questions. Because they continue to look for a meaning. And, in the end, they will find it.
I am a Canadian skier, chasing my dream of winning medals for our nation...and having a kickass time learning about sport, the outdoors, and myself along the way!
I race for Canada internationally and represent the province of Ontario when racing domestically. I am originally from Wroxeter, Ontario, but now live and train in the beautiful mountain town of Canmore, Alberta. I was into many different sports growing up, but my unorthodox journey in the Nordic sports began only ten years ago when I learned how to ski at age 14, and I fell in love with the sport of biathlon only seven years ago when I first started shooting in Grade 12. The challenge of the two totally different sports—cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship—appealed to me greatly, and I've been chasing my dream, in the Rocky Mountains and in races around the globe, ever since.
