Biography

My passion is dog mushing and I have spent all my life doing this incredible sport and the great life you have together with a group of dogs.

For me Iditarod is the ultimate test of all the training we have been doing. Going on this historical trail in the great nature of Alaska is something that draws you back. The dogs are of old Norwegian lines bred in to some of the best lines from Alaska. Dogs from Charlie Champaine, Roxy Wright, George Attla and Ramy Brooks. They are big with a lot of fur and very good attitude and drive. They are always ready to go if I do my work as a musher.
