Gerard Kirk

Program Support Worker

Hi there. I’ve been the woodworking supervisor at Torchlight since 2000. I came to this multi-faceted position from the construction industry where I did finish carpentry and stair building and haven’t looked back. Currently, I’m helping to develop our Ignite social enterprise, where participants get paid for the projects they work on for the program. I’m a former newspaper reporter and have worked extensively as a musician playing drums and singing. I’m also a husband and father who loves fly fishing/fly tying, books, cooking and of course woodworking.  It’s a fun job with fun people – that’s what has kept me here.
