A Bit More

Paul Turk is originally from southeast Saskatchewan and has nostalgia for the Qu'Appelle Valley.

Paul finished Civil Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan in 1997 and moved to Calgary to start working in petroleum inspection projects.

Mountains called and adventure followed, along with family and tons of hobbies.

Ask me about a few of them and see what we have in common.
