Career Goal: “I am looking for a career that I love, where I can support my lifestyle of travelling, snowmobiling, and dirt biking.”
Growing up on the West Coast of Canada, Timothy became an outdoor enthusiast, spending much of his free time hiking, hunting, fishing, and camping. Most recently, Timothy hiked the West Coast Trail, a highly challenging 77 kilometre (47 mile) hike along the rugged Pacific coastline. He also completed the Canoe Circuit of Bowron Lake Provincial Park, which includes 116 kilometres of vast lakes and waterways. Timothy applies this love for new and exciting experiences to his career. For him, the challenge of working with electricity – in its mystery and its complexity – makes it an experience of a lifetime. Having successfully completed four years of technical training in electrical wiring, Timothy is putting his skills to work as lead hand on the newest section of Calgary’s Light Rail Transit System. Timothy is looking forward to continued learning and the challenge of competition at WorldSkills London 2011.
