In 2006 he moved to Kimberley, where he continues to explore the mountains with his friends, wife, and two young children. In 2017, along with his best friend and climbing partner, he became the first to traverse the Purcell Mountains on foot in the summer by trekking from near Kimberley to Rogers Pass.

He actively volunteers with the East Kootenay Climbing Association to advocate for, maintain, and develop outdoor climbing in Southeastern BC. He lives in Kimberley, British Columbia.
