Michael Flaherty is the Sculpture Technician for the Fine Arts Program at Memorial University of Newfoundland – Grenfell Campus. He has peddled across the continent doing free bicycle repairs in the name of art, conceptually created an entire island off the Northern Peninsula, and he can grow one of the more impressive beards on the island. See more of his work at www.ceramicfundamentalist.com.

The Most Interesting People In Newfoundland is a series of video profiles — one that asks fascinating people to define themselves as individuals and as Newfoundlanders. Some will be familiar, others less so, but each has a story to tell.
