Hello! My name is Kyle; a 27 year old vagabond of sorts from the East Kootenays of British Columbia. I grew up in North-West Ontario, moved to South Africa when I was 9 years old then eventually ended up in Kimberley BC. The moves of my childhood instilled an inability to stay still and an appetite to see as much of this planet as possible in the time I've been given, covering the earth before it covers me (not my quote, I believe that piece of inspiration came from the mind of Dagobert D. Runes).
After high school my post secondary experience lasted a whole three semesters before I booked a flight to New Zealand. Since then I've done some volunteering in India, worked farms in Australia, became a yoga instructor, completed my divemaster certification and more recently worked on my skills as a photographer. In between trips I've worked five summer seasons in Yoho National Park in order to fund the next trip. This time spent within our mountain national parks has really grown a great appreciation for our wild places and preservation of them. It's been delayed a few times in the past couple years but my future goal is to complete a diploma program in environmental science (possibly leading into a degree in Geography) in order to start into some field work. I'm really looking forward to being part of the Ocean Bridge program this year and dipping my toes into this field of study.
