Hi friends, I am pleased to say that I will be a speaker at the Vancouver Mountain Film Festival this year!
On Sunday February 11th, I will be doing a 45 minute presentation about why I decided bicycling and paddling over 15000 km across North America with a guitar on my back over the last five years was a good idea and what I have learned from it all so far. This will be followed by a musical performance of a few songs I have written along the way, and then a featuring of two of the wonderful adventure films selected this year by the festival.
Doors open at 7 PM show starts at 7:30.
If you are going to be in or around Vancouver, the festival runs for nine days from February 9th-17th celebrating mountain film, sports, and culture. There are going to be some amazing films and speakers involved with the festival this year that I am beyond honoured to see, meet, and participate with including National Geographic explorer Mike Libecki who has been on over 75 expeditions to some of the most remote parts of the world, Iranian adventurer Parvaneh Kazemi who start climbing at the age of 35 and now is the first woman in the world to reach the summit of Mount Everest & Lhotsie in a single season, award winning broadcaster & geneticist David Suzuki, and many more.
I am beyond excited to be a part of all this and hope to see some of you there!
