Tell me about the last 5 years of your life.

I had a business guiding and setting up tourism in British Columbia, that was frustrating because I was attracting the clients I didn't intend to, it was people who wanted to party and consume resources instead of appreciating nature, so I went to New Zealand and took footage, worked for tourism companies, explored the country, then I came back to BC and since have been building the web content side of things, getting involved with that, outdoor exploration program with kids in the city to expose them to opportunities outside they've never had, building a business of web content. I've done some writing for local magazines.
