What is a luckpusher?

The dictionary definition of the idiom, “push your luck” is: to take a risk on the assumption that one will continue to be successful.  Therefore a luckpusher is a person who lives by this idea.  By that measure, wouldn’t we all aspire to be luckpushers?

I’m a luckpusher.

I am an educator, motivational speaker, writer, fundraiser, extreme athlete, and world explorer.   I have always been on a quest to challenge myself with unconventional goals and pursue a life less ordinary.

As well as running in some amazing races, some of the highlights from the past few years are:

– named by Avenue Magazine as one of Calgary’s Top 40 under 40 for 2013

– completing Ironman Canada in Penticton

– winning a $10,000 writing contest through CBC

– cycling 700km  of the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain

– eating at El Bulli the world’s best restaurant and meeting Ferran Adria

– competing in a national cooking contest ACE Bakery Best Sandwich in Canada 2013 Finalist

– short-listed for Top 20 in CBC Bloodlines short story contest

– and winning a $5,000 weight loss challenge

I would like to share my experiences with you and hope that these stories will light a spark in you too!

I encourage you to push your luck.
