Coach presentation


I have been riding in all disciplines for over 20 years in the Ottawa/Gatineau area as well as around the country. In addition to enduro and DH riding I have raced recreationally across QC and BC; in the winter months you can find me on my BMX honing my skills in the indoor park. My past coaching experience includes coaching with MTB camps in the Ottawa area as well as teaching snowboarding at Camp Fortune and Kicking Horse.


I hold a PMBIA Level 1 Certification and a CASI Level 2 Certification

Coaching philosophy

First and foremost I believe a fun and positive learning environment fosters progress. The job of a coach is to bring simplicity to elements of riding that may feel complex or intimidating; I always strive to teach simple elements and bring them together in a way that supports clients in building capabilities, and confidence on their bike. I want to understand each client’s goals for their own riding and tailor the experience so we can reach them in a safe and fun way.

A session with me will provide you with

A typical session with me would always start with a conversation about what is important to you, where you might want to improve, and what you love about riding. We would then warm up, work on some skills and maneuver based learning, and take that to trail. Practice makes perfect and another key aspect I will focus on is a healthy balance of learning and reps to allow you to feel the change in your riding and receive real-time feedback as you learn new things.

Planing your day

To protect yourself from minor scrapes and injuries, Bikeskills recommends that you ALWAYS wear knee protection. Gloves, eyewear / goggles and elbow protection are also recommended, but not mandatory. Of course, a helmet is always essential, ideally a mountain bike specific helmet. A full-face helmet and chest protector for advanced and/or lift courses is also recommended, but not mandatory.

As the class will be held outdoors and we might not have access to indoor facilities, it is recommended that you check the mountain weather forecast and plan accordingly, as weather can change rapidly. It is recommended that each member of the group bring snacks and water to ensure they have enough energy to enjoy the class.
