Trevor spent most of his early days as a downhill ski racer, but quickly took to road cycling as a teenager. He spent four years racing as a Junior and Espoire in Belgium, France, and Italy dreaming of becoming a professional cyclist. By the time he was 20 that dream took a bit of a backseat to school and normal life. Five years later, however, his desire for competition was re-lit and he found the great sport of triathlon. Another four years down the road, after numerous great races in the long course triathlon, Ironman circuit, he and his wife Heather decided to 'go all in' and commit to being the best professional Ironman athletes they could be. They sold their condo, gave away most of their belongings and bought a small 23 foot RV so they could live cheaply and dedicate 100% of their energy to triathlon. "It was a scary first couple years, scraping by financially, parking our home on the street to save money. But it was all about committing fully, and we made it work."   

2012 saw Trevor take his first win in an Ironman 70.3 event in New Orleans. He also backed that up with a 4th place finish at the Ironman USA Professional championships in New York City, and was awarded the 2012 Elite male long-course Triathlete of the Year from Triathlon Canada.

Trevor's progression as a professional athlete has been nice and steady. He's been gradually getting faster in all three sports and slowly chipping away at the guys in front. "I know 2013 and 2014 are going to be my best years yet," says Trevor. "I feel I'm now at the point where I can line up at Ironman events and be a contender for the win."
