Our Founder Story

Raised near the Coulees with a love for the outdoors, Dexter has over 10 years of progressive business development experience in the outdoor lifestyle industry. The decision to launch Coulee Outdoor came from a passion for the industry and perfect timing to join a community where headquarters would be the perfect home, Cochrane, Alberta. A community thriving with entrepreneurship, close to family and outdoor adventures. 

Entrepreneurship runs in Dexter’s blood and he sees opportunity at every corner. A nightly campfire is a Hamilton household staple to decompress from the day and connect with each other. Innovation is often 'sparked' by what isn’t working and there were a few elements of the traditional campfire that needed some tweaking. On top of that, his industry experience with wood pellets as a fuel source and a gap in the market made it the perfect opportunity to jump into this new business venture. Dexter launched Coulee Outdoor with innovative fire pits and plans to expand to a robust, full outdoor lifestyle brand.
