I’ve long been captivated by the beauty of the landscape and the spirit of the people in these remote frontiers. My 30-plus years in sales and marketing is enhanced by an entrepreneurial spirit and a natural affinity for the great outdoors. I gained some serious guiding chops as a co-owner of Wanapitei Canoe and Northern Expeditions, specializing in Arctic canoe trips. And I was the co-founder of Destination Arctic, a tourism marketing consulting company. In 2004, I became co-owner of Horizon & Co., and after I spent 6 years as co-owner and president, the US$12-million boutique travel company was sold to Kensington Tours, and I went on to become the chief experience officer at Arctic Kingdom Polar Expeditions. Deeply passionate about the Arctic and the business of experiential travel, I joined Quark Expeditions as Vice President, Sales in 2012. Since I took the reins as President in 2014, the company has continued to grow and innovate, receiving numerous awards for its breakthrough programs and products.
