Culinary instructor, co-owner. A 10th generation Canadian who grew up in a household where food was fuel, however, and luckily, education revered. Pursued a BA in History and Geography at the University of Victoria and later a Masters in Public Administration, and owned a management consulting company for 13 years. But food, somewhere in all this, became a passion which simply needed deeper investigation. He attended, after years of pondering, Northwest in 2008, apprenticed at Raincity Grill, worked for 6 years at Culinary Capers Catering, did personal catering, and assisted for many years with Northwest’s evening enthusiast classes. His broad intellect, approachability, research skills, understanding of educational methodologies, business acumen, and friendly interview skills make him very versatile. Wears the most hats on any given day, and is also a great example to students of how to take advantage of your history to move your career along.
