I have been a Journeyman Carpenter & Vocational Education Teacher since graduating the University of Alberta in 1984. My first nine years were teaching both Junior & Senior High Industrial Arts. Since then I've specialized in Building Construction Technologies & Wildlife. Married to Brenda in 1981, our family is proud to be part of the Barrhead community. It is an honor to share my passion for woodworking & outdoor pursuits with such fantastic youth & exceptional teaching staff! My philosophy is that personal pride & dedication will make every student successful at whatever they choose to pursue. I used to think that My greatest personal accomplishment was a handstand on the rings..... until I had 4 children and they all became proud successful graduates of Barrhead Composite High School!!
