Q: How did you first get involved in orienteering?
A: I was carried around many courses as a baby by my parents.
Q: If you had one tip for young orienteers what would it be?
A: Learn from your experiences.
Q: What would a typical week of training look like for you?
A: Cardio workouts and strength training during the week and longer activities or races on the weekends. I try to keep a good balance of orienteering-specific training and cross training to keep my body and mind happy.
Q: How do you normally prepare for an important race?
A: Study maps on or near the venue and train on maps close to home that have similar terrain. Ottawa is great because we have a wide variety of terrains close by so I can choose maps that would best prepare me for certain races.
Q: What is your big life orienteering goal?
A: North American champion in the middle or long distance.
