Hello! As you've read, my name is Aidan. I'm a seventeen year old Swiss-Canadian guy living in one of the most beautiful places in the world: Sun Peaks B.C.

My hobbies include hiking, reading, skiing, camping, and especially photography. I shoot mainly on a Nikon D3100, and I'll occasionally shoot on an old Canon AE-1 35mm which belonged to my great-grandpa before me.

The books I read are mostly classic literature or philosophy, but I'm a huge fan of Hunter S. Thompson's works as well as those of Hemingway, Huxley, Orwell, Descartes and Barthes.

I've been skiing since I was less than a year old at the ski resort I live in, and it's a yearly winter ritual for me. Between the constant hiking I do year round and my religious constancy of skiing, I can be found on a mountain at just about any time.

I'm also a self proclaimed coffee connoisseur, and it's as much a religion to me as skiing is.

I'm in my graduation year of highschool and will be attending University next year to obtain my Bachelors Degree in Journalism.

I hope to one day live in the Lauterbrunnen valley in Switzerland, the country I am from, and spend my time travelling and photographing beautiful places all around the world.
