Where are you from?
Raised on a farm in Bear Canyon, AB, moved to Grande Prairie in 1989.
What led you into this field?
I was born for it. I’ve always had an aptitude for math and physics and a desire to understand how things work. Growing up on the farm, I often tinkered and took things apart: clocks, small engines, power tools. Occasionally, by luck or reasoning, I would successfully rebuild something.
What is your professional education, background and expertise?
I have an Honours Diploma in Civil Engineering Technology from NAIT. I have served in various capacities in the engineering field since 1994 including Engineering Design & Drafting, Field Inspector, Manager of Engineering Design & Technical Services and Project Manager.
