Have you had any close calls? If yes, what happened?
Had a close call and it was when I left my tie-in in a stem I was removing. It was a crane removal, and I had the first cut in, and was about to start my second cut, when a coworker informed me, calmly in our communication headsets, that I had missed that. So before finishing the cut I removed my tie in.
What is your hidden talent? Don’t think I have any hidden talents.
When you’re not climbing trees what are your other interest/hobbies.?
I love playing ice hockey, snowmobiling, kayaking, canoeing, sitting in a hammock and just relaxing outside when it’s nice out!
