Projects

Each year I embark on a number of projects to keep me focused and healthy! 

Last year I swam through the Inside Passage in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest from Lama Pass to Namu and beyond. This was my third swim in the Great Bear Sea. It is here where I have encountered whales, jellyfish larger than any I could have ever imagined and learned about the role the sea and the land that surrounds it plays in living a health life.

I also attempted the first ever double crossing of the Strait of Juan de Fuca in August 2018. 

One of my greatest joys in life is coaching a group of 60 Special Olympic athletes. Over the next year 6 of them will be training to swim across the English Channel on a relay team; the Spirit Orcas. I am thrilled to be both their coach for this incredible venture as well as their number 1 supporter and friend.

Every year I organize the Thetis Lake Swim for MS with my good friend MJ VanBergen. And as an ongoing project I share my experiences with MS on msathlete.org, my personal blog.
