Experience

Joined The Chervin Family In:

  • June 2001

Previous Industry Experience:

  • Started at Chervin working in the Kitchen Machining department; from there became a Supervisor in the Hardware department, then worked in Shipping & Receiving for a while before transitioning to Engineering.
  • I've been managing Engineering since 2017. Every day is unique, filled with meetings, phone calls, delegating, and lots of answering questions!

Family

Deanna and I got married in 2008. We have two sons and a daughter now, and family means the world to us!

Most Unique Project

My team worked on a sliding bookcase door a while ago - it was challenging to design, but so rewarding for everyone involved in the end!

Favourite Quote

"Alone we can do little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller

Personal Style

Current Personal Dream Design:
My favourite wood right now is Rift White Oak. I also enjoy mixing rustic elements into a transitional design; details like x-frame ends on an island or reclaimed wood.

Happy this fad is over:

Cathedral-style doors - they can be beautiful, but have to be installed in the right environment and made of the right wood species to feel current.

Hobbies

Current Hobbies:
Playing with my kids (building toy trains together, for one!), and tinkering around the house.

Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
Hockey and baseball.

Favourite Meal

To Cook:
A Saturday morning breakfast of bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns. I'm also a grilled cheese and macaroni expert! :)

To Eat:
Taco salad has been my absolute favourite for many years - it's usually my birthday meal request! I also enjoy a bowl of Raisin Bran just about any time of the day - extra raisins, please.
