A positive look back at
Since joining @Steller, I've
posted an annual
year-in-review style story.

Just because the year didn't go
according to plan, I didn't
want to break that tradition.

Despite the global pandemic;
nearly all my work being
cancelled not just once, but
twice; and the challenge of
new (and essential) health
restrictions, I managed to
squeeze in plenty of
adventures both abroad
(Jan-Feb) and closer to home

This is my positive look back
at the year.

This year was my eighth as a
full-time photographer, writer and
filmmaker. Like every year, when I
look back at my favourite memories,
I am beyond thankful that my
passions are the focal point of my

I will never take these
opportunities for granted.

At the risk of making this story too
long, I've divided the year up into 4
quarters and shared 5 experiences
from each.

Essentially, these are my  20 for '20.

Sometimes, I leave my camera at
home, too, so I don't always have an
image to share.

A few highlights that weren't
pictured here, include:

1. Spending 3 days in NYC,
exploring Manhattan and Queens

2. Attending @jackfusco's wedding
in Pennsylvania, USA

3. More books read and Netflix
watched than ever before

4. A 7 day bikepack trip to
Vancouver Island, BC.
While I know we will all
remember 2020 for the
Covid-19 pandemic and its
incredible toll around the globe,
I hope this story inspires you to
take a moment to reflect on the
positive experiences you've
enjoyed in the past 12 months.

Whether it's a lengthy list of
backyard adventures or a quiet
moment with your family, leave
me a message with a positive
memory you'll cherish as we
turn the calendar to a new year.

Thank you.
