ERIK SIMMONS - Partner & Handyman
Ross has always been a hands-on builder and repair guy and was always helping his dad and grandfathers with repairs and furniture building around the house and the family farm. He started his journey at Lakehead University’s Forestry Program, but after realizing that the future was in the field of electronics, he enrolled in Devry Institute of Technology’s Electronic Engineering Program. After completing this program he started his career at Motorola where he worked for 24 years before his division of the company was closed. During this time Ross and his wife, Kai, added a second storey to their East York bungalow doing most of the interior finishing work themselves. He also became the “go-2-guy” for friends, family and neighbours who needed advice or help with home repairs.
