As much as I love writing software, my other passions keep me sane and happy. Mostly this involves being outside year round and enjoying the amazing four seasons that Ottawa has to offer.

  • Summer: open water swimming, road cycling, trail running
  • Fall: cyclocross, pool swimming, hiking, yoga
  • Winter: classic skiing, skate skiing, run commuting, pool swimming
  • Spring: yoga, pool swimming, road cycling

One of my latest cycling pursuits is exploring portions of the trans canada trail and other rail trails. These make for great 4-5 day cycling vacations with my partner.
