Career Experience

After graduating from BCIT (1996), I worked on short fishery and forestry contracts for numerous companies and clients.
As time went on I shifted into more forestry-related employment (primary layout and cruising), which added another skill set and taught me the value of accuracy.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • My focus became to work in the natural outdoor environment of my youth. Continual regulatory changes continue to challenge me and add depth to this career. The most significant and powerful things that ASTTBC’s AScT designation has given me, are professional credibility, and pride of association.
