Tim was born in Peterborough and currently teaches biology and science at Lakefield College School. He has lived in Nunavut and Morocco during his time as a teacher. Tim has led student expeditions to Ecuador and the Galapagos, Cambodia, and in the jungles of Costa Rica. He's a passionate educator, outdoorsmen, adventurer, and explorer, and has climbed several peaks in Canada, Ecuador, and Morocco; including Mt Toubkal - the 3rd highest peak in Africa. Tim has hiked the Juan De Fuca Trail on Vancouver Island and has explored many of the lakes and rivers throughout Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
Growing up on the Bay of Quinte, and living in the village of Lakefield, Struan is most at home near or on the water. Camping experiences from an early age have led to a passion for going off grid and active outdoor pursuits. Fortunate to have traveled extensively for work, he appreciates getting to live-like-a-local wherever he travels which means making friends and seeing the sights. Closer to home, Struan has enjoyed hiking some of Canada’s epic hikes including the West Coast Trail and Gros Morne. An outdoorsman and self-described leisurologist, no adventure is complete without culture, great company, good food and the latest gear.
