Gene is Two Degrees North’s longest tenure craftsman and resident expert that guides any extraordinarily challenging project to a perfect reality. Self-taught for the past forty years, Gene has worked in many different shops, each with their own specialties including contemporary kitchens, reproduction furniture and production facilities.
Gene always aspired to be a master craftsman: he inherited his father’s tools, machinery and the skill in his hands. Today, Gene is proud to pass on this knowledge to colleagues and to his daughter, Maya, who is his main focus when not at work, whether geocaching, reading, creating & designing furniture, wood games or custom Halloween costumes.
An avid photographer, Gene is never without a camera to capture the moment. A member of the “lumberjocks”, you can view some of Gene’s favourite projects at lumberjocks.com/vipond33.
