After a university basketball and high school teaching career in Sudbury, Ontario Norm made the decision to travel west to enroll in a wilderness guide training program in Vancouver, British Columbia which is where his paddling journey began. Upon completion Norm was fortunate to be hired as an adventure guide in the Great Bear Rainforest on the north coast of B.C. where sharing the beauty and secrets of the temperate rainforest with guests from around the world was an honor for him. He now aims to educate people about SUP, and the role sport can play in protecting the environment.
