graphic designer/photography coordinator for a resort corporation (Intrawest)...was orignally hired as the Whistler/Blackcomg Marketing Departments Illustrator, and it morphed into other positions...it taught me alot about design, print, web, photography and the wacky ways of clients...so no complaints.

swinging hammers
pouring concrete
moving heavy shit
general back breaking labour

i also had the luxury of trying to not get stabbed working as security for a shitty hotel in saskatoon for a whopping $8 an hour.

i was so happy the last time i was back and saw that it was condemned.

I worked road construction to save money so I could live during my apprenticeship. Paved roads, filled potholes, pikced up dead animals, fun stuff. I got pretty lucky, I only had to work one season after high school and then I started tattooing.
