What, who or how and when did you first get involved with the Iditarod?

I got involved with the Iditarod through Ryan Redington, being a friend of his for, look, probably for five or six years now, and lucky enough to have one or two of his dogs in Australia.

What is your Why? Why are you here TODAY and involved with the Iditarod?

I’m here today and involved in the Iditarod because of our love for dogs. We have 47 back home and it’s the dogs that brought us here.

Tell me about just one of your most memorable Iditarod experiences.

So the experience I’ve had so far with the Iditarod was when Ryan came in the other night at the finish line. He actually let me bring the dogs down to the dog lot here.

What in life do you know for sure?

Always been involved with dogs.
