Craig studied Marketing at university, honing his ability to be creative with the truth. After graduating he became a Management Consultant and his transformation into professional BS artist was complete. Once he’d run out of ways to repeat the clients ideas back to them for a hefty premium he fled to Melbourne, Australia where he lay low and met his wife Lauren, who brought him back to Canada as a souvenir. Their daughter Neve joined them in February 2014 and has been perfecting the art of being adorable every day since.
