Skiing brought me to Whistler in the spring of 1988...I was spending more time at my local ski resort back in Ontario (Horseshoe Valley) than at school. I was the youngest...the leash was long and I had a car ('79 Chevy Malibu). It was clear by March of that year, I was not going to advance my high school career without a minor miracle if I remained where I was. My options were sticking it out and going to summer school or getting life experience. I heard getting a job in Whistler was easy, the season was long and I promised my parents I would come back and start over in the fall. I bought a one way ticket to Vancouver...I had a duffel bag, skis and $300. I was 18. That's my Whistler story, we all have one. What's yours? Whistler; she's a siren and has pulled me back in more than once. I love films, music and skiing. My wife and I live in Squamish and I work at Mountain FM. Thanks for having me as your MC, thrilled to be part the Whistler Chamber Excellence Awards.Cancelation Policy: Payment is non refundable for cancelations made within 3 business days of the event, or non attendance on the day.
