When and how did you get started mushing? I moved to Sioux Lookout in NW Ontario after many nomadic years. There I met Jesse, and soon fell in love with his team of sled dogs, and then him. We eventually shacked up and now share a life of running a racing kennel.

What have been your mushing highlights? Completing the Canadian Challenge 300 mi - the de facto "winner" with no other registered competitors! A true race against self. Seeing the youngster dogs excel and receiving the vet award on that one was pretty great.

Future Goals Building our kennel, seeing the young dogs mature, and get to start training the B-team graduates on longer mid-distance races.
