I was born and raised in Vancouver. These days, I live in Trail with my spouse Damon and two kids Daxton and Kensington. Before falling into woodworking, I’d gotten my ticket in steamfitting and pipefitting. That was set aside once the kids came along, but I always kept up with crafting. I got the ball rolling with epoxy resin pouring and have a drink tumbler making workshop at home… there’s more glitter there than any one person could ever need (boiling mad red, peacock feather teal, and tinsel bling just to name a few). Once I moved onto pouring for charcuterie boards and introduced wood, I realized I didn’t know what I was doing! That combined with needing a job, I decided to enroll into Selkirk’s program to get a handle on the wood craft.
