Michael Gatenby
Regional Lead
Ottawa, Ontario

Ottawa man, born and raised. I love Anime, Dungeons & Dragons, Video Games, and getting together with large groups of people. I believe in having a firm grip on reality, just as much as I believe in nurturing yourself Physically, Mentally, and Spiritually. That is what brought me to the Asatru faith, and what I hope to teach others.

Adam "AJ" Theal
Smith Falls, Ontario

My name is AJ, I'm originally from Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia, Canada. I joined the Army in 2005 and moved out West to Alberta in 2006. I left the Army in 2013 and went back to school getting my Welding Journeyman while also working as a paid on call Fire Fighter. I re-joined the Army in 2017 and moved out to Ontario at the End of 2018.

Started studying Asatru while out of the Army in 2016 and joined TAC at the end of 2018. I became interested in the Ambassador towards the end of last year as a way to learn and give back to the community.

Looking forward to meeting new people and continuing my studies.

Michelle Jones-McGill
Owen Sound

Hello everyone!
My name is Michelle and I've been a TAC member since spring 2019.
Currently, I'm from the beautiful Bruce Peninsula (Owen Sound) in Ontario, Canada.

I've always had a strong pull towards Heathenry and have studied it for years - it's always been able to hold my interest.
My parents were both raised Catholic, but allowed me to seek out my own path for which I am very grateful, as I know not everyone has that choice.
It's been quite the adventure, but it feels right following this path - it's almost inexplicable.
Even before I knew about religions, I always felt the pull of the wyrd - now I just know what it's called.

I hope to get to know you all better, and be able to represent TAC in my local community!

If you have any questions, I'll always do my best to answer them or find the answers, don't be shy!

Ryan Gautreau
Waterloo

Hail! Well met! Im Ryan Gautreau, im father of 4, two daughters and two sons. I have had a longing in my heart since as I could remember, being raised by a Catholic farther and a Christian mother I was pushed and pulled in different directions of beliefs but never truly felt connected or even interested in anything until I came across my heritage in Scotland that its roots dwells well in the old Norse ways. So I practiced Ásatrú in solidarity for 5 years finally getting out of hiding and finding The Ásatrú Community that have like minded people a wonderful community that I still continue to grow with the vast knowledge of everyone here! My ultimate goal in this region is help abolish the outside perception of people less fortunate to be educated properly without other influences on Pagan/Ásatrú, from a negative outlook to a positive one. To remove the fear of the Ásatrúars/Pagans, (Personally this is how i felt). Another big thing I believe in is helping out the community and volunteering. I'm an open book you can contact me at anytime I will be there to answer any question to the best of my knowledge and if I don't know I will find it out.
