Brought up on a 75 acres subsistence farm surrounded by a pristine forest, on the eastern seaboard of Nova Scotia, Canada.
He was gardening before he could walk and was designing rainwater catchment systems by age ten. His childhood was largely sculpted by David Suzuki’s The Nature of Things and by the forestry industry, which stripped the land that he knew. Life led him to study a specialization in The Human Environment with a minor in Biological Ecology at Concordia University in Montreal.
At this point in his life, with the glamour’s of academia coming to a halt, he discovered Permaculture: Greening the Desert by Geoff Lawton. Soon after he founded P3Permaculture.ca, People for the Profit of the Planet: A Social Enterprise in 2009. He began with small-scale design projects until he was on his way to Denman Island, to learn how to set up and run the Permaculture Design Certification course (PDC) which he took with Jesse Lemieux, at Pacific Permaculture.
Furthering his experience, he undertook various suburban and urban projects in both Montreal and Sydney. After this, he received a two-month apprenticeship under Geoff Lawton's supervision, from The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia (PRI). While in Australia he took specific certifications in Earthworks and PDC Teacher Training. Upon completion of this apprenticeship he returned Montreal to co-ordinate the implementation and design of RealiTea, an urban farming project at Concordia University's Loyola Campus. Based in Montreal him and his team, currently runs 2 part-time and 2 full-time PDC a year, along with design consultations and many hands-on workshops in the city, in the maritimes and abroad.
