Robb is one of the founding members of Paddlefoot Inc. and Wilderness Safety Systems, and continues in the role of Director and Head Instructor. Robb started PaddleFoot with an extensive background in Wilderness Tripping and has been leading Outdoor Adventure Programs for over 20 years. Robb grew up in Montreal, Quebec, and holds a Bachelors Degree from the University of Western Ontario. Today, Robb is a certified instructor for Rescue 3 International, Wilderness Medical Associates International, the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation and Raven Rescue.
As an Ontario certified Paramedic, Robb truly enjoys his work in pre-hospital care as a part-time employee of the Muskoka Ambulance Service when he is not in the field. Robb’s work providing medical and rescue support in remote areas, throughout Canada and such places as Africa, Borneo, Guyana and Costa Rica, makes him the ideal person to join any team requiring a versatile member. Robb has recently received Camera Operator and Sound Technician credits on several TV productions requiring “out of the ordinary” skill sets. And perhaps in his most important job to date, Robb is father of two boys who would say he is an expert Lego Engineer, story-teller and tree-fort Architect.
