My Interests

      Aside from reading, writing, and studying languages, my interests include weightlifting and arbitrating disputes between my children. I've also been known to play a video game from time to time.

Here are some pictures.

 Halifax Court House, February 2013

     Babysitting as my wife covers the espionage trial of Jeffrey Delisle. She's the one wearing the sling as she holds the camera overhead.


 Playing around at Jakaból in Reykjavík, May 2015


     Jakaból is Magnús Ver Magnússon's strongman gym, hidden under a supermarket on Arnarbakki. Hafþór Björnsson, who plays Gregor Clegane ("The Mountain") in Game of Thrones also trains here.

I'm sure my Norse professors would prefer I translate the 'Aumingjar' in the background of the left photo as 'wretches', but 'pussies' is more accurate here. The rubber-coated Atlas Stone in the photo on the right is 100kg (so, my bodyweight). It was the biggest one sitting out when my buddy and I were there. I imagine the 500-pounders were locked up somewhere. Good thing. 

Canoeing the Petawawa River, Algonquin Park, June 2016

Gray and me shooting the Rollway Rapids. Or it might have been The Natch. Either way, thanks to Clarence for the great shot.
