Don brings a lifetime of mechanical experience to Ashton. Starting early as an automotive apprentice, a hydraulic technician, spending some time in the military/ law enforcement and then, ultimately, to a Red Seal as a millwright. As a millwright, he has worked in manufacturing, sawmills, food production and aerospace building platforms for companies like NASA, Boeing and McDonnell Douglas.
Don brings a strong aptitude for all things mechanical, with a special interest in compressors and turbines. Metal is his preferred medium; Don is also a bladesmith/ metal fabricator.
Safety and high-quality results are the main priorities.
Don spends his downtime with his dog Nyx, a puppy Cane Corso.
