I originally went to UVic to become a photo journalist.  Somehow, along the way, between planting tree's, a busted back, travelling around the world and fighting forest fires, I made my way out of UVic as an enthusiastic Kinesiologist.  My passions have since merged and I now share my energy between 3 loves: Fitness, Photography and Writing.  I am looking forward to discovering where this journey takes me.  Thanks for coming along for the ride!
