Personal: Hobbies: skiing, water skiing, backyard sportsing, science, reading, mountain running, rock climbing, backpacking, paddling, jumping in a cold lake, campfires, singing in the shower...My dream vacation spot is… Canmore, Alberta....When traveling, the thing I miss the most is… my family. And a well-stocked refrigerator. ...My favorite meal is… dry oatmeal. Just kidding. I'll say a bison burger with sweet potato fries....I never leave my house without… getting pumped for the day with some shadowboxing....If I were not an athlete, I would... explore!
