Welcome to our website. I am the founder and president of Tranquil Escapes Ponds & Watergardens. With the help from my amazing and supportive wife, Kathy, we started this family business nearly 25 years ago, crafting and carving small indoor rock water fountains. Small fountains quickly became designing and constructing backyard ponds. Today, our three children work for us during our peak season and they each bring with them their own set of skills both on and off the jobsite.

My love for working outdoors and creating water features for customers is stronger than ever and this led me to make this my full time career as our business continued to grow over the years. Prior to creating water features, I was employed by several major insurers for over 20 years, as a Risk Consultant, specialized in assessing large civil construction projects across Canada.

My education background includes a diploma in Fire Protection Engineering Technology, Seneca College, followed by various personal developments such as, Canadian Risk Management (C.R.M.), Certified Engineering Technologist (C. E.T.), certificates in risk assessment of underground construction, underground mining risks, dam safety assessments to name a few. I continually enjoy learning more about water feature construction and attending industry events, including the recent Natural Swimming Pond conference in Brussels, Belgium.

If I am not working on or off the jobsite for our business, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, visiting new wineries, puttering around on our one acre country property, and fishing.
