Alexander grew up exploring natural spaces around his home in Toronto, spending his summers at overnight camp in Halliburton where he began to cultivate his outdoor skills and understanding of what it means to connect with nature. He began working as a back country canoe trip guide at the age of 16, and has been in the field ever since. He holds a Bachelors degree with a focus in socio-cultural anthropology from the University of Guelph, where he’s currently working on a Masters degree, and researches sustainability and human connections to wild places.
His passions are many, from getting lost in Cedar groves and going for multi-day canoe trips in Algonquin Park, to snacking on wildflowers and watching the clouds roll in the sky high above.
Alex moved to Guelph for university, and quickly fell in love with the community has been with us for the past year. He came to us as a volunteer in February of 2017, was soon after brought on as a GOS Instructor & Coyote Mentor.
