How does a ground handling job at YVR turn into years and years of travels through Scandinavia chasing the aurora?
Well it starts with really understanding supervisors at the airport - willing to rehire you every time you come back home after quitting to travel.
Year after year, I was above the arctic circle in Norway, Finland, Sweden, and eventually Iceland just before settling down here in Yellowknife. A kismet rendezvous with one of the most talented and dedicated aurora guides in the world, Kjetil Skogli, kept leading me back to Tromsø where I gained a lot of my knowledge and inspiration for this lifestyle, of chasing the lights. It was my addiction, my obsession, and I was hoping it would one day become my life.
