The Words of a Compagnon
From France to Seattle...a year with the Compagnons.
"I am a new employee of Seattle Stair and how I wound up here has been an amazing journey, which when I began, I always hoped that I would be working with such skilled, passionate and interesting people as I have found here.
In August of 2011, I was chosen as the first American to take part in an international fellowship exchange program at the Coubertin Foundation in Saint-Rémy-les-Chevreuse, France with the Compagnons du Devoir. My 11 months there were filled with workshop training, art, computer drafting, architectural history, mathematics and cultural events and trips. I learned as much about a wonderful country and culture as I did about my work.
Shawn, who was has been bringing in French Compagnons for several years to work and live in Seattle, has graciously given me the opportunity to become part of the team here and I am loving every day, as I continue to learn and develop into a talented craftsman."
