Vincent

 

Vince Di Lena is a new graduate of the Cegep of Gaspé, Quebec, from the Adventure Tourism program. Paddling since his early teens, he also enjoys climbing, camping, and fishing whenever he gets the chance. His love of the water is only matched by his passion for anything related to science, and while he is usually an introvert it can be difficult to get him to stop talking if it’s about biology, astronomy or physics, so watch out. Vince has the eyes of an eagle: If there is wildlife to be found – you can bet he will see it first, and point it out to you.
