I am the proud owner of Fleet Street Barber Company, a full service, upscale barber shop in the heart of Trenton, Ontario.
Originally from Milford Station, Nova Scotia, I have been a Trenton resident since the summer of 2008, when I was posted here as a member of the Royal Canadian Airforce. What I found here was a wonderful little town with huge potential. In the time I have been here, Trenton has grown and evolved and continues to do so. I am very excited to be a part of that growth.
When I left the service, I went to St. Lawrence College to train as a hairstylist and discovered a great interest in barbering. Gone are the days when only women get to indulge in style and comfort. More and more men are looking for not only a nice haircut, but a great atmosphere where we can relax and enjoy some of the finer things in life. It is my pleasure to create that space. Here, men can take some time to look and feel great. I can't wait to see you in my chair.
I was very excited when Peter Fletcher asked me to join him bringing a new vibrancy to King Street downtown Trenton.
Arriving in the Trenton area in 2008 from the seaside town of Portsmouth, England, I’ve seen great changes in the area, this being one of them. I’m very lucky to call Canada and this community home.
Thanks for listening,
Desmond was born in Victoria, British Columbia but has lived in Trenton since 2008. Having completed all his schooling thus far at École Élémentaire Publique Cité-Jeunesse and École Secondaire Publique Marc-Garneau, he is fluent in both English and French.
He has been part of Fleet Street Barber Company from the very beginning, first helping to renovate the space, then helping to maintain it so it's only fitting that his first job be here.
Desmond is a solid, quiet, dependable young man whose attention to detail and easy manner makes him a most welcome addition to the team.
