I was born outside of Toronto, Canada and lived in many places before finding a home in Tompkins County in 2002. Having attended school for culinary arts I opened Turtle Dreams B&B with my wife Fran and we eventually expanded to include a Tipi Campground. I joined the staff of New Roots in 2012 and have served students in a variety of capacities including: Art instructor, Advisor, Kitchen staff, substitute teacher, 1:1 Aide and excited to now have the position of events & operations for the 2017-18 year. I am also a husband of 18 years, a father of 4 and an artist/storyteller/musician – you can see some of my art installations at Lime Hollow Nature Center. I love being at New Roots and care deeply about our student’s experiences. Please let me know what I can do for you!
