Planting draws me back every year because of the way it pushes me to my physical and mental limits. The resulting personal growth and gain allows me to enjoy my winters to the fullest. I began planting as a way to pay for school. After graduation, I made the decision to dedicate my off season to things I find fun. I fill that need with traveling, road tripping in my van, and playing in the mountains on a snowboard. I currently plant to fund my active life in Revelstoke, BC. I value the freedom that planting gives me and I strive everyday to get my planters to that same feeling of success.

My Planting history:
I have been fortunate to work with Summit for my whole planting career. I spent 3 years planting and driving crummy. I stepped into foreman under short notice and came to really enjoy the role.
2019 will be my first season running an entire camp, though I have supervised several smaller hotel projects throughout my career. 2018 was my 5th as a foreman and I look to bring together people for 2019 that will push each other to their best and support each other during the worst. My planters need to be able to find fun in their work. It is entirely possible to work your hardest and also have a great time. If you have the drive to give’r this summer, give me a shout.
Expectations and Goals:
We are all here to work toward our own unique form of success. I am here to help you reach and hopefully even go beyond that level of success. To get there will be a collaborative effort, I ask that we both bring:
-Open communication all the time – the good, the bad, and what you favourite colour is.
-Positivity – the glass is always half full, even if we drank all the water.
-Determination – how great would it be to surpass that goal of yours?
Further, you can expect from me
-Full days of planting
-Safety at all cost
-Lots of laughter and corny jokes
