Jeremy has been guiding rafts for 7 years and this will be his first season with Stellar Descents. After studying Outdoor Adventure Leadership at Laurentian University, Jeremy made the move west in 2014, where he now lives year round, ski patrolling and raft guiding. His passion for exploring rivers has brought him from coast to coast in Canada, up to the Yukon and Northern BC, and down to the rivers of Patagonia. When Jeremy’s off the raft, he can easily be found kayaking, mountain biking, or flying a Cessna around.
