I am a former National Ski Team member for XC Skiing in Canada. (back in the 90's) retired and was hired by my sponsors. Moved up through the ranks to become General Manager for Swagman, a bike rack manufacturer based in Penticton, BC. I continue to coach part-time for local ski clubs and have been on and off sport governing body's Board of Directors for 20 years, Took up swimming in 2015 to recover from a broken pelvis and found that I LOVE it. Started swimming with the local triathletes and have done a few Ultra swims, several 70.3 and most recently my first full distance IM.
