After 13 years and 3400 dives as a professional diver, Dan decided to take up welding as a career following the footsteps of family members. Both his older brother Dave, a graduate of PVI in 1979, and his grandfather John Field, a machinist, inventor & founder of Field's Welding Supplies one of the largest welding supply companies in BC (until its sale to Air Liquide in 1970), were major influences. Dan has been welding & fabricating as a hobby for many years in both the off road and diving sectors before becoming a certified welder through various Camosun College programs in 2008.
Dan carries on his Gradfather's legacy of innovative and quality welding and fabrication service.
