Little did I know when I first hopped in a canoe, at the age of 5, that it’d take me thus far.
After two decades of racing regionally, provincially, nationally and internationally, I am still driven by the passion to push a tiny boat to its limits over relatively short distances. Always attracted to venture into unchartered territories, I’ve decided to pledge allegiance to Uncle Sam in an effort to bring me closer to my Olympic dream. My debut season with Team USA has been an eye opening experience giving me the opportunity to perfect my craft and pursue excellence in an environment that allows me to fulfill my other passion: creating stuff.I quickly developed the double life of the athletepreneur. Athlete by day, entrepreneur by night, I sought to find solutions to daily pains I was experiencing in my athlete life. My first real venture came in 2010 when I decided to fix the online shopping experience for athletes – Sportically was born. In its short lifespan, the online sport shop for athletes brought Canadian athletes a better online shopping experience for their training clothes and training computers.
