A resident of Mandeville Quebec. He completed his first work – a wood bowl – at the age of twelve, already showing interest in woodturning. As an adult, after studied in electronics, he worked as a soundeffects man for the national radio station, which also became a means for him to express his artistic learnings. In the late 1970’s, he found an old Rockwell lathe, and began his apprenticeship as a woodturner.
His interest grew during a seminar in Putney, Vermont with Russ Zimmerman. A subsequent trip to England allowed him to visit other workshops and exchange ideas with other woodturners. Woodturning went from a self-taught pastime to a passion. Woodturning has become his fulltime occupation. He takes great pleasure walking in the woods and discovering fallen trees, which he can transform into works of art.
