Although Dave has been a “retired” wilderness guide and experiential educator for a while, he still enjoys exploring the outdoors. He keeps his teaching skills up to date as a Level II CANSI Telemark Instructor.

As a graduate with an Honours Bachelor in Outdoor Recreation, Parks, Tourism from Lakehead University, Dave also earned a certificate in Tourism Resource Management.

Growing up in Canada’s National Capital Region he was afforded many opportunities to play outside. Summer camp eventually turned into a summer job and passionate play turned into a decade long career as a wilderness instructor and experiential educator.
