What started you on your woodworking path?
When I was 4, my father handed me a brush and a bucket (albeit filled with water) and asked me to go paint the dock. With diligence and determination, I finished my task, fascinated by the wood's transformation under my careful strokes. From that moment, I knew wood was a wonderful and creative medium to work with.
I was born and raised in Ontario. As soon as I was able, I moved to Halifax Nova Scotia, and eventually received a Combined Honors Philosophy degree from the University of King’s College.
How did you end up on the West Coast?
I have always been drawn to it. My favourite song growing up was “Northwest Passage” by Stan Rogers. I listened to it again recently and am curious if some seed was planted in my brain then.
