I’m a born and raised mountain girl from Banff, Alberta. Yes, I was actually born there. And yes, people actually live in Banff 😉 Despite growing up skiing, hiking and just about every other outdoor activity imaginable, it wasn’t until I left the Rockies that I truly fell in love with them. After finishing my International Business degree and studying abroad in Hong Kong, I rushed back home, planted roots in Calgary and now spend every spare moment back home in the mountains where I belong. Robin and I travel as often as we can, but I never want to take our beautiful backyard for granted again. We spend just as much time exploring the Rockies, because let’s face it: there’s nowhere on Earth quite like it.
I grew up near London, England – about as far away from the mountains as you can get. In 2012 I decided to take a Gap Year before starting Med School and chose the most obscure place I’d never heard of: Banff. While out one night, I met Louise and the rest is history 🙂 I did a year of Med School, before switching things up and completing my Masters of International Real Estate. I returned to Canada, got my Permanent Resident status, and am now a full-time travel writer and photographer.
