My work experience comes from a variety of fields. For a number of years I have done commercial fishing in the Northeast Pacific, been a sawyer on the Hotshots, and done timber falling and production climbing. I have served as an aerial rescue technician on hurricane cleanups. I have had the honor of training some of the best tree climbers I know. The skills they acquired have helped them overcome the difficult scenarios that they encounter in day to day tree work.
