About Me

Not many people get to say that they fell in love with their career at the tender age of 14, so I consider myself one of the fortunate ones. I was first introduced to carpentry when I got to watch a carpenter working on my fathers house. I was hooked! After that, I was able to spend three years working after school, on weekends, and during the summer breaks with David McMinn (David has won several awards for his work in heritage restoration) on projects such as building decks, fences, and renovations of heritage homes. So while most teenagers hung out playing video games, I got to spend my leisure time swinging a hammer and learning a trade from a true craftsman.

When I turned 18, I decided to move to Vancouver to get my Red Seal in carpentry at BCIT. During this time, I worked for a company that was building high-end homes in some of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland. Starting the project from the foundation and ending with the finishing carpentry, I was privileged to train under this set of carpenters. I worked alongside them for over 10 years, developing the skills that would help to shape my own career in the field.

In 2003, after completing my Red Seal, I was offered a job building strip malls and doing home renovations in between the larger projects. After two years in industrial construction, I was promoted to supervisor. I was in charge of 100s of millions of dollars in construction and a crew of over a 100 people. My job was to keep the project moving along safely and efficiently. This experience helped to develop my ability to plan, forecast, as well as to provide me with a deeper knowledge of my own trade and the other trades with whom I interacted. But it was also during this time that I realized that my heart was happiest when I was working on smaller-scale projects with people who were looking for someone to help build their dreams—be it a new deck, a full renovation, or something in between. So I decided to start a company specializing in making people’s old and new houses better. It’s now been four years since the company got going and I’m responsible for a crew of eight—all young, enthusiastic, and very talented. Most importantly, we simply love what we do.

My career to date has brought with it the typical highs and lows but even in the worst of the challenges Ive faced throughout the many projects Ive been a part of, Ive never lost the passion that got sparked when I first witnessed that carpenter back when I was just a kid of 14.  Looking forward, Im excited about what lies ahead the clients the dreams… and how I can use my expertise to turn the dreams into something that the client is proud to call their home.

“…I met Jeremy over a year ago at the very beginning of our upcoming major house build. He was to be our site manager. How was I to know at that time that Jeremy would become an integral part of my daily existence for the entire year as we worked together to build my family’s dream home. Now that we’re nearing completion, I can easily reflect on the project: its positives and its negatives. Working with Jeremy has definitely been a positive…”

“…The most important aspect (aside from his technical skills) is the fact that he cares.”
