I moved to the Guelph area from Waterdown to the quiet village of Rockwood when I was in elementary school. I attended Centennial and Guelph Collegiates, as well as the University of Guelph, graduating in 1978 with an Agricultural Business degree from the Ontario Agricultural College. My wife and I have lived in Guelph for the past 36 years and have raised our three children.
I worked in the agricultural business for 11 years with Nutrite Fertilizers, King Grain Limited and United Cooperatives of Ontario, all in sales and service as an area manager. I began real estate in 1986 and have been in the business helping clients buy and sell homes, farms and commercial property.
Being involved in the community has always been an important part of my life, having been a coach, trainer and volunteer for Guelph Minor Hockey and Guelph Youth Soccer for many years. I have served on committees for the Guelph Association of Realtors, Royal LePage Royal City Realty and the South Muskoka Snowmobile Club. I have also been the recipient of the Diamond, Director’s Platinum and President’s Gold Awards for consistent performance, as well as have become a Lifetime Member of the Award of Excellence. I enjoy the great outdoors and can find just about anything to fix or keep me occupied in my spare time.
