I was born in Pembroke, Ontario. During my career teaching special education in Ottawa, my ‘spare-time’ passion was woodworking.
During those years, I made Nativity sets, wooden toys, money banks and educational games.
After retiring from teaching, my wife Marilyn and I moved to Prince Edward Island. My woodworking passion continued and we opened up a craft shop where we could both share our individual passions together.
I have always had an interest in birdhouse construction. During the years in P.E.I., making birdhouses became my favourite pastime.
I now reside in Perth, Ontario and continue to enjoy my newest hobby.
