When I was very young, I emigrated to Vancouver and was quickly immersed in community, church, school, sport and adventure. I developed a fascination for this planet and studied zoology, aiming toward a career in health care. God had different plans, however, and I discerned a calling which has led me down numerous paths. I continue to have wonder for this world and places of splendour. My wife, Ruth, and I have two adult children and Hastings (Labradoodle). The work of ministry continues to keep me humble and grateful while the ability to create with my hands keeps me grounded.
