I live in the Southdale area of Dartmouth with my partner Maureen and two sons Kieran and Rylan.  We joined Banook as a family 7 years ago and both boys agreed it was there best summer ever.  Seven years later both boys are still paddling and Maureen and I have joined the Masters Group.  We train and or paddle with Banook year round and enjoy the social aspect as much as the physical workout.

 This year I have offered my time as Paddling Chair.  This has been a steep learning curve, and I have been grateful for the support of a strong paddling committee, the board and the past chair.

For the past 9 years, I have volunteered with CADS, teaching individuals with disabilities to downhill ski.  When not volunteering, I am self-employed as an Industrial Audiologist.
