Musher Question & Answer

How many years have you been running dogs?
8
How did you get started running dogs?

My dad purchased some Siberians. They were pets at first, then became sled dogs, and I was hooked.

What do you love most about running sled dogs?
Are you a member of any other organizations involved in sled dog sports?
Dog Powered Sports Association of Yukon
Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
I enjoyed last year's race and want to challenge myself again. My goals are to incorporate what I learned and finish with a good-looking team.
How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?

Most of my dogs were named by previous owners but dogs born in my kennel are named based on themes. I do shorten names to make them easier.

What music do you listen to on the trail?
Share a quick story about one of your indispensable Handlers

There is no room for a handler in a tiny house.
