How did you get started running dogs?
As a young boy, I always had a dream of having my own dog team. Being able to live with some of the best canine athletes in the world 365 days a year is a dream, come true. Racing is a true bonus and allows us to challenge ourselves together as a team competing against the best long-distance teams in the world.
What do you love most about running sled dogs?
Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
I entered this year's race to face the challenge head-on and love every minute of it.
How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?
Most of our dogs are named based on sports themes. The year my team has a lot of the NHL teams - Canuck, Jet, Senator, Penguin, Star.

In 2018, I truly had a team of Angel Volunteers help rescue me out of a dangerous situation. I will be forever grateful to this group of incredible people.
