About the Author

I live in London, Ontario, Canada with my amazing wife, beautiful two year-old daughter, and our cat (that’s her on the top of the page).

I am a proud father and husband, a runner, and an aspiring triathlete.  I am also a teacher, with 13 years experience teaching in Canada and Sweden.

On September 16/17 of 2017 I completed my first ultramarathon covering 132 km in 24 hours.

I ran this race in honour of my late son Jacob, my daughter Hadley, and all of the children and families whose lives have been impacted by the Children’s Health Foundation.  It is my hope that I can raise $24 000 through my efforts.  Thus far, we have raised nearly $8000.

I was fortunate to be featured by the Children’s Health Foundation in a recent Father’s Day campaign.

My story is also featured in the Sept/Oct. issue of Canadian Running magazine.
