In June of 1992, at a Tlingit gathering  in South East Alaska, the elders and community members presented Wayne with his carving knives. This gift gave Wayne the responsibility to carve, as well as to study the art, stories, songs regalia, dance and the language of his nation. Wayne eagerly started working full time with  his teacher Dempsey Bob, a master carver of the Wolf Clan (Yan Yeidi Of the Taltan/Tlingit First Nations. Dempsey is a fantastic teacher, and is inspiring in all areas of the culture and art. I will have to keep working hard to show my gratitude and respect for his teachings".

Wayne Moved to Vancouver in May of 1993. An important goal for him is to help troubled youth through his art, stories and positive teaching.

On October 30.1993 James Lewis and Wayne completed a totem pole dedicated to Mary Capilano. Their second pole, the human Peace Pole, was completed and raised in may 1994. The 22 foot pole, depicting the legend "How the Raven Stole the Sun" was raised in May 1995. Wayne has since carved "Salmon Creek" and "Frog Woman" poles. The Next Generation Pole that stands in front of the "little big House" was raised in the summer of 1997. It was carved by Wayne and designed with James Lewis. Along with carving totem poles, Wayne also continues to work on Masks, bowls, spoons, Plaques, regalia, and prints. He teaches many people about the Tlingit culture.

Wayne also leads a dance group with traditional regalia, head dress mask and drums.
