I am passionately involved in the preservation and care of our urban forest. I am on the board of directors for the International Society of Arboriculture Ontario Chapter, and I am heavily involved with 10,000 Trees for the Rouge Valley. I am also the owner of a small tree care company called Gillies Tree Care.
I am an instructor throughout Ontario and Canada with different training organizations. I am also a lead instructor at Humber College where I teach Arboriculture Practices.
My goal is to help people work safer while increasing their mental tool box.
I am the father of twin girls Abigail and Charlotte and husband to a wonderful wife Carla.
