Skate Technician Designer Owner Operator
The information here is accumulative over a span of 40 years, with my individual experiences ranging from Competing as an International Figure Skating Competitor and Olympics Alternate for Canada, to Coaching at all levels from beginning Figure Skating Levels through to International Competitors. Performed in Ice Capades , also as their Skate Technician, and Music Technician. Having other opportunities such as working with the New Zealand National Hockey Team for Skating Skills and as their Skate Technician. Other work involved working at Cyclone Taylor for 5 years, and more recently at Skaters Edge for 17 Years. It was an Honour to be asked to be a Skate Technician at the 2010 Olympics.
Working with Beginning Athletes along with World and Olympic Athletes has been a very rewarding experience. Always designing and cross checking
theories that have been passed down over the generations to confirm validity, and all the while conversing with other Technicians, Skaters, Coaches and Manufacturers.
Work smart, enjoy the training, build good moral character, enjoy your sport, and enjoy the journey.
