After several years of studying Engineering at Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nicholas changed course to follow his family’s footsteps in pursuing a fishing career in Port Rexton. Nicholas has experience in design and construction through the development of his own heat-efficient cabin. His interest in building continues as he intends to build his own house in Port Rexton. So far, this process has shown him the many barriers to living in the area. Nicholas’ background and experience sparked his interest to be a part of the housing solution with Otter Housing Association.
