He has had the privilege to coach at successful canoe clubs since 1996 and continues to enjoy sharing his passion for paddling with some great athletes at Burloak. He also has worked as a National Team coach and has coached some of Canada’s top athletes, including three Olympic medalists.

The thing he likes the best about paddling is being on the water. The thing he likes most about coaching is helping people be their best.”
