I grew up surrounded by creative tradespeople. My father was an electrician and both of my parents spent time creating in our basement workshop. I also witnessed the building of our new family home, at an impressionable age, and have had a thing for houses and renovating them ever since. I am a trained furniture maker, graduating from Sheridan College's highly esteemed program in 2003. I have over 10 years of renovation experience and most recently, I've been teaching woodworking and building construction at a highly respected technical school in Toronto.
