Where are you from & where do you currently live?

I am from Alberta and I currently live full-time in my van, hopping from place to place around the Alberta Rockies.

What do you do?

I am known to push the limits mentally and physically in any way I can. Nothing in life fills my heart more than some serious type 2 fun.

Now for the important questions, what’s your favourite jack link’s meat snack?

I love all the craziness of life but find balance by snacking on Jack Link’s Original Beef Jerky.

How do you feed your wild side?

Winter camping, multi-day ski expeditions, 300km bike rides, mountaineering and all of the incredible little things in between from the comfort of my van :D.

If you could hang with the sasquatch for a day, what would you guys do?

It’s tough to find ski partners that are down to get after it in the extreme cold. I would dial up Sasquatch and ask if he wanted to bag a big peak in the Alberta Rockies. Upon reaching the top we would set up camp for the night and enjoy a charcuterie board with a variety of Jack Link’s flavours, paired with fine cheeses #datenight.

What are you trying to get done in 2021?

With the world shutting down, I am craving human connection more than ever. I hope for the world to open back up so I can launch my Hike with Mike 5.0 Series and get another group of 100+ people, plus Sasquatch, out to enjoy the mental and physical benefits that the outdoors have to offer. I CAN’T WAIT!!!

My perfect day is:

Wake up to an Alpine Start and crush a big day on the bike, skis, or go on an epic hike and suffer the entire day, wondering why on earth I did this to myself. Then I’d return to my van, parked in the middle of nowhere, pull off my gear, make a meal, kick back and hit the repeat button to do it all again tomorrow. TYPE 2 fun is my type of fun.

What’s one surprising thing people may not know about you?

I have a job… I travel a ton but I can work remotely and have been self employed for 10 years in the strength and conditioning industry. I work a ton of hours behind the scenes and love all my in person and online clients SO MUCH.
