From a young age, Garet developed a talent for drawing and an aptitude for design through his love of aviation. Combining his creative skills with a construction background allowed him to kick-start his career early in engineering. Starting at the Alberta School of Drafting in 1995, he soon learned that he easily grasped some of the most difficult aspects of applied geometry and 3D spatial analysis. This only propelled him to move further to obtain an Honors Diploma in Engineering Design & Drafting at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in 1997.
Garet’s determination pushed him to enter the workforce immediately, eager to develop his skills and make a difference in the world around him. He started in electrical engineering with Beaubien Glover and joined a very close knit team at Wasnea Mah Engineering in 2000. Garet’s diligence, passion and precision to design mixed with David’s diverse, precise technical abilities eventually led them both to establish Teradi Consulting Limited in 2007.
