I was born in Vanderhoof. My wife’s name is Jane Thake Ray and I have two children, Jonas and Abby. I have lived in Fraser Lake since 2007. I have a Bachelor of Education degree from Simon Fraser University. The Village of Fraser Lake employed me in 2007, where I designed and built our maple leaf on the front of the arena and commissioned our water plant, along side the Works Department foreman, Vern Hilman. I was the chief water plant operator for two years when I decided to pursue my career as a teacher in 2010. At Fraser Lake Elementary Secondary School, I have created an Outdoor Education class, a Music class, a Mountain bike club, and a Snowboard and Ski club. I enjoy fishing, music, motorcycles, and being outdoors.
I am interested in the continued development of our recreational activities, tourist opportunities and the community forest program. However, while exploring these options, we need to be fiscally responsible and ensure that our seniors are taken care of. I have a vested interest in seeing our community prosper and I will bring a voice to challenging issues, so that Fraser Lake continues to be a place we call home.
