Whether owning a handyman and landscape business, or as professional Property Manager/Caretaker, Bruce Weaver has always cared for place with the aesthetic of an artist, the heart of an Earth steward, and keen attention to detail.
Raised in rural Missouri in a family of modest means, if Bruce wasn’t in his father’s workshop fixing the family car or repairing the washing machine, he could be found wandering the family’s rural 40-acres with his artist mother, who painted or photographed the landscape of his childhood. This upbringing, coupled with Bruce's innate curiosity, love of problem-solving, self-sufficiency, and an affinity with the environment, has led to a life of study, exploratory learning, and hands-on care of places, and the Earth.
After high school Bruce entered the Air Force where he trained as an After high school, Bruce entered the Air Force where he trained as an Armaments Specialist with a top security clearance to load Nuclear weapons on F-4 fighter jets, and B-52 bombers-- an experience that proved enlightening and ushered-in the knowledge that his path in life would be one of a peaceful warrior.
When the Internet arrived, Bruce's artistic urges found a new arena for expression. Immersing himself in self-study of Internet technologies, in time, he entered and won a scholarship contest to attend the prestigious Vancouver Film School, where he earned a degree in New Media/Transmedia.
Today, Bruce has returned to his love of property care, and systems management, garden and environmental landscape design, serving as consultant for a 35-acre estate slated for a fly-fishing lodge in the Catskill Mountains, NY. When he's not busy doing that, he's likely making and telling a short video story, or creating something beautiful with his hands.
