Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
MIND: I really value a sense of humour, a sense of adventure and a
curious, intellectual mind - I love learning, traveling and good
conversation. I'm interested in almost everything - politics, arts,

BODY: I love to get into the nooks and crannies of the world, and
so lead a pretty active lifestyle - hiking, running, cycling, yoga,
soccer, exploring, and just feeling good in my skin. Paddling and
swimming in lakes are summer favourites – of all the places I’ve

habits of healthy, active living – and who is ready, or at least
willing, for a backcountry trip!
SPIRIT: Got some! I am passionate and engaged in my life.
Deliberate living is important to me…always trying to make the most
of life. Getting outside is invigorating, and staying in with some
good company, a book or a movie is rejuvenating - and can be an
adventure in itself. My bicycle is pure freedom…so hopefully you
appreciate two wheels sometimes. I value generosity, courage,
imagination, music, integrity and humour. I am very honest and
genuine, sometimes serious, but always ready to laugh!

I am always on the lookout for new/unique experiences, insight,

also absolutely love cities too and have lived downtown toronto for
most of the last 10 years (when not out and about checking out the
rest of the world, which I have done a lot of!). Just over a year
ago my experience, skills, knowledge and passion merged into a fab
new job working full time in outdoor education.
I’m really good at
