Pat and Baiba Morrow

Pat and Baiba Morrow are world explorers. Pat climbed Mount Everest with the first Canadian expedition in 1982 as the photographer and the 2nd Canadian to the roof of our terrestrial world. In 1986, he stood upon the last on the list of the 7 highest summits on each continent, the first person in the world to achieve this. For that and other international mountaineering accomplishments, Pat was made a member of the Order of Canada. He is also an award-winning photographer and videographer.

The Morrows are effective conservation activists. Baiba sits on the board of directors at Wildsight, an organization working to preserve biodiversity and sustain communities in the Columbia and Rocky Mountain Ranges of British Columbia and Alberta.

Pat maintains his own website, but decided he wanted some help modernizing for our contemporary mobile environment. Together we went through an extensive design and organization process to create a mobile-responsive website that showcased their accomplishments and adventures. Creating a custom WordPress theme build ensured that Pat could continue to update and maintain the site himself, which he frequently does.
