He worked as a carnie for the West Coast Amusements for many years, where he travelled to numerous places. His next passion for employment was fire fighting for Alberta Sustainable Resources. However, his “Number One” start to finish work ethic was pipelining where he worked for several companies, such as: Surerus Murphy, Doran Stewart Oilfield Services and Pasco Energy Services. He enjoyed his artistic talents with his Indigenous beadwork and drawings.
