Welcome to my blog! This is a site where you can keep up to date on my life as a full-time athlete in the sport of cross country skiing. You can expect regular updates throughout the year as I report on training, racing, life in general and maybe even some school. Sponsors, family, friends and fans: Enjoy!

4 year anniversary of Diamond Sponsor, Stantec Inc.!

Previously FSC Architects & Engineers, but acquired by Stantec Inc. in fall 2011, has been my largest sponsor from the North over the last 4 years, sponsoring me at my highest level of sponsorship, the Diamond Level.

From Google:

"Stantec Inc. (Stantec) provides professional consulting services in the area of infrastructure and facilities for clients in the public and private sectors. The Company’s services include planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, project management, environmental sciences, and project economics for infrastructure and facilities projects."

Stantec's corporate philanthropic stewardship of athletics in the North is second to none, sponsoring other high level athletes such as my close friend and snowboarder, Andrew Matthews of Yellowknife (who also trains in Whistler and is my next-door neighbour!), and other high level cross country skiers, the Nishikawa siblings, from Whitehorse, YT. 

Presenting a traditional Inuit whale bone carving of a skier to Warren McLeod of FSC Architects & Engineers in Yellowknife (now Stantec). The carving is mounted on a large, flat slab of sandstone collected from a rocky beach on the breathtaking East Arm of Great Slave Lake, my summer vacation spot from childhood and a place that is very close to my heart. 
The piece of whale bone was carved into a likeness of me skiing by my childhood soccer teacher and long-time friend, Bob Kussy of Ashoona Studios in Yellowknife.

Thank you, Stantec, for your continued support in my ski career. Without your help this wouldn't be possible.
