Born in a log cabin deep in the snowdrifts of rural British Columbia, Emanuel grew up surrounded by fragrant forests and crisp clear mountain lakes. He moved to the coast for school, earning degrees and certifications from UVic, BCIT, and ECUAD. He loves his quiet little life in the rain-soaked city, but the wild & windswept places will always be home.
