Since 2006, I dabbled in the geotourism scene via a non-profit organization that I founded to take advantage of the growing use of technology within the outdoors. I focused heavily on partnerships with Provincial & National Parks by creating a number of geocaching (geotourism) programs across Canada which have been emulated and adapted by other groups.
My background in community development, content creation, training & managing projects allows me to provide to partners experience and professionalism.
After seven years- my interests evolved towards general outdoor recreation. Avoiding Chores Publishing was created in 2012 and is a single person owner/operation that is a registered small business in Nova Scotia as a content development & delivery operation. Past projects included web, video, and eBooks. With the help of a developer, I published a iOS app called NSTrails that leveraged all the GPS hiking data I collected over the years. That project sunset at the end of 2016. You can peruse the content in eBook format now.
But it’s not all serious, currently I regularly create niche/local content and podcast. I’m currently focusing my efforts in providing high quality, short video content on Garmin products for outdoors & running. This has been a niche that comes naturally to me and judging from the video views over the years, a lot of people need a little help with their GPS devices after purchase.
