Peter Lauser, from Calgary, loves working with his hands. His grandmother, who serves as his inspiration for choosing the trades, used to tell him, “there is gold in your hands.” A motivating statement to which Lauser responds, “well, I want to see just how much.” Trained as a Mechanical Millwright, he knows he landed the right trade. “It was the closest to Mechanical Engineering…which is the field I have studied in,” says Lauser. At 22, he strives to obtain his Red Seal ticket and return to school to learn even more. “Because my field is so broad, there is always more to learn.” When he is not honing his skills in his trade, Lauser is a classical music enthusiast.
