I live in Pemberton, BC on a small farm with my family. I have my own sawmill which I used to build our log home. In the summer I own and operate a whitewater jetboat company, Whistler Jet Boating. It is a family run operation, with my wife Parveen and two sons, Logan and Dalton helping out. We offer tours on the Green River which has grade 3 & 4 rapids whistlerjetboating.com.
We work hard all summer so we can fit a surf vacation before ski season starts. My boys and I hunt in the fall for elk, moose and deer to fill our freezers. This year I have built my own rally car and competed in the Canadian Rally Championship, and will compete in the series next year as well. Skiing has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have had many first ski descents in the Coastal Mountains of BC and around the world and continue to ski over 100 days a year. I now share my passion and love of skiing with my sons on Whistler Blackcomb and in the backcountry.
