After growing up on Vancouver Island, it was not a difficult decision to return to its natural beauty and recreational opportunities in 1993, after spending eight years in Vancouver for schooling and articling with the international accounting firm Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers).

Being able to assist individuals and corporations on a more intimate basis was a driving force in completing a "second CA" by becoming licensed by the Federal Government as Licensed Insolvency Trustee in 1997.

It is extremely satisfying to be able to witness lives change for the positive due to a restructuring of financial affairs. When not at work, time can be easily spent with my wife Jacquie and two children, enjoying water sports, golfing or donating time at the North Island Employment Foundation Society, for the Salvation Army and as a Director of the Campbell River and Area Multicultural Society.
