Jeff first came to the Yukon in 2010 to compete in the Yukon River Quest. “I was fortunate to see the Yukon for the first time from the seat of a canoe, and I think it was that unique perspective that gave me a special appreciation for the vast untouched wilderness of the Yukon. I instantly fell in love with this place”. Soon after arriving in Dawson that first time by canoe, Jeff quickly decided this is where he wanted to make is home. He came back the following summer to work at placer gold mine where he continued until 2019. He would spend his winters trying something different every year including ice road construction for the Diamond mines in the NWT, construction of the new highway to Tuktoyuktuk, ranching/ farming in Alberta and work at both Minto and Victoria Gold here in the Yukon. Jeff joined the Golden Predator team in July of 2019, “the first time I went to Brewery Creek I was blown away by the reclamation work that was done and the extra attention and care for the environment. I knew right away this was the kind of mining I wanted to be a part of. I love the fact that Brewery is so close to home, I can have the benefits of a good career in the mining industry and still get to go home to my family at the end of every day. This is usually unheard of in the mining industry.” Prior to his mining career Jeff worked in the aviation industry as an aircraft mechanic, an aircraft broker and he was the one who pioneered the brokering of aircraft loans in Canada. Jeff is an avid pilot and aviation enthusiasts who enjoys flying in his spare time and working on his plane. Jeff and his wife Nicole bought a home and acreage close to Dawson in 2017 where they enjoy the modern off grid lifestyle with their daughter Aurora.
