Devan Rawn didn't have any hands-on experience with beekeeping prior to working for the Tech-Transfer Program. The idea of starting work with bees full time was exciting and a little bit nerve racking at the same time. With quite a few stings under his belt (including a couple good face ones), Devan is proud to say he's become a "Bee Boy". Now he's fully immersed in the job and enjoys it very much.
In his spare time, Devan enjoys pretty much anything outside in the natural world and is an avid disc golfer. Devan acknowledges many of the courses he's taken at University of Guelph for sparking an interest in insects and our fascinating environment.
