What do you enjoy most about working at Rainhouse?
I enjoy the company of my fellow colleagues, the friendly atmosphere, working around the dogs, and learning new things. I find everyday is a little different.
What is your favorite aspect of machine manufacturing?
Once I have machined a challenging part, I like seeing the part completed within in specifications, with great surface finishes.
How was the process / journey to become a red seal machinist?
It was fun and challenging. During my second year I did night school one night a week while working full time, made for long days. In my third year I did every Friday. It was nice to be able to focus on the schooling more.

I have a degree in golf course management.
What is the ONE THING you cannot live without?
I could not live without coffee.
