  • Description


    I live in Alert Bay where I run a small environmental non-profit organization that conducts conservation based research on cetaceans. It is demanding but fulfilling work. I have a number of projects around the yard that I need help with both due to not having enough time to complete them and having some issues with my back. The setting is quite nice here with beautiful oceanfront views.
