A Little Bit About me ….

Born and raised in Toronto. Attended Lakeshore Teachers’ College, York University and Christian Leaders Institute.  Began as a teacher but spent most of my career as a business executive.
I moved to the Niagara Region in 2016.

My Personal Story ….

I retired from the business world in 2012. Received the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee medal for a lifetime of service to the Direct Selling Industry. I currently serve as a coach/consultant to several non-profit groups.

My Family ….

I have been married to my best friend since 1983. We have 4 married children and 8 incredible grandchildren.

My wife operates a licensed childcare centre in our home and we feel as though all of the little munchkins are just like our own grandkids.

My Life Experience ….

Throughout my career from the time I was 19 until now, I have always been involved in the non-profit sector.  I have served with several organizations such as Promise Keepers (Chair of Canadian Board), Youth Unlimited (Local Committee Member), Pioneer Clubs Canada (Board member) and Teen Vision and Camp Living Water (Co-founder and Director). Currently, I work with Adults, a Men’s group as well as Seniors.

My Interests & Passions ….

I like to play golf, shoot pictures and travel. My wife and I have traveled to most countries in Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean. We have taken 18 cruises so far and our long-range plan is to take a European riverboat cruise.  Our favourite destinations so far: Ireland, Israel, and Branson, Missouri.
