I was born in Quesnel and moved to Nakusp when I was 10. I completed a degree in International Relations at UBC in 1987 but found myself gravitating back to my logging town roots. I worked as a landing bucker, shake blocker, tree planter and juvenile spacer before deciding to formalize my forestry education by returning to UBC and completing a forestry degree in 1993. I worked as a forest manager in Nakusp for twenty years. In 2012, my partner and I moved to Blewett and I accepted a job teaching at the college.
