Being a tradesperson from middle earth (Kamloops, BC) means you get a broad range of experiences. Paul’s expereince is testimony to that fact.

Paul is a third generation tradesperson who was first exposed to the trades as a boy helping out his father. His experiences in the trades led him to some incredible jobs and more incredible people – especially his dad and extended family.

After a short stint in University, Paul found himself helping out the family business when he suddenly was caught up in a service call that eventually had him hooked on a trade.

Paul teaches the piping trades at Thompson Rivers University and can be found lurking around old steam engines fantasizing about getting them back into operating conditions.

Hope you enjoy listening to Paul’s interview – it was a treat and a privilege to have him on the show.
