About me…

Well, I moved to Brussels October 2011 and have enjoyed a great first experience here in Europe. I am from Canada and have trained with such trainers as Bobbie Reber and Chris Pratt. I came over to Europe because I wanted to come to the birthplace of our sport. The place where it all began and still begins. Europe is the epicenter of show jumping and I hope to understand more about our sport by being here and learning from some of the best.

I currently ride with Marc Van Dijck; acclaimed Belgium rider, previous top 20 Rolex ranked rider and winner of such accolades as 2001 Nations Cup at Aachen (with Ludo Philippaerts and Jos Lansink).

I have met some amazing people so far and I am enjoying meeting more people every day. My goal is to capture a bit of the essence of the community of show jumping. To bring a perspective that others can enjoy and to contribute to bringing the world of of this unique sport just a little bit closer together.

One comment on “About me…

  1. Perusing your site, I came across your piece on Gucci. Really nice. You might be interested in a new clothing line started by my wife and her best friend. It’s right up your alley. We are looking for exposure in Europe, as it has been tremendously successful in the US. If you are inclined, please visit the site. Pardon the mess, as we are reconstructing to make room for the entire line set to debut soon. Also, the FB page has plenty to see. I’d be interested in your feedback and if you want, I would send you samples, as well. Thanks for the time and good luck!
