John has been part of the Tundra Team for nearly 3 years! He loves boating, being outdoors, and his favourite sports team is the Edmonton Oilers. John’s teammates describe him as dedicated, hard-working, and creative.

We connected with John and asked him to answer some personal questions about himself. Here is what we found:
