    I recently completed my studies at LTU, since then my girlfriend and I decided a OS trip/working holiday was necessary, and we have relocated (temporarily) to sunny Vancouver.

    Although I have not had the chance to begin my career in a clinical setting, I have been fortunate enough to gain some experience as a Ski Boot Fitter/Technician in Lake Tahoe and Whistler, and working here in Vancouver for an orthotics lab. Hopefully when I begin to practice I will be able to put the skills I have acquired into good use.

    Both jobs have left my mind running a million mph, in order to develop a better understanding of biomechanics. Thus, I will be looking forward to discussing the many queries and questions I have brewing in my mind.

    LTU not sure on that? You wil find that LTU may mean many diiferent things around the world
    :--)). For future may need to be mindful of this?
    Emjoy the travels and I have no doubt you will be seen discussing your thoughts on biomechanics soon,

    Good Luck
