  • Description

    Hi, My name is Tom, I'm 63 years old. I live in Ely, Minnesota 10 miles from the canadian border, a place where people come from all over the world to paddle in the BWCAW (Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness)
    I have been a workawayer and volunteer in Mexico, NZ, Australia, Portugal the last several winters. I became a WA host two years ago with the idea of hosting people to help build/design four cabins in four years. I recently retired from my two small businesses. #1 (Building cabin/houses off grid or on) and a graphic design business #2 Lure North Inc. (marketing and logo design) And I also am a wilderness canoe/fishing guide in the summer.
    I love KIds and meeting new people. I have lived with out water and/or electricity often over the last 40 years, and have built a number places in the woods of Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. I am an artist at heart and I like to design living spaces with people, and also love to help people with there building ideas.
