I’m a long time Vernon resident, business owner, professional, and community leader.
Born in Winnipeg, I spent much of my childhood in the Toronto area, moving to Vernon in 1993. I’ve made a home and wonderful life here with my wife Heather, son Andrew (16) and daughter Emily (11).
After completing my formal education at Queen’s University, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Since then I’ve achieved several profes-sional designations in the field of addictions and clinical intervention, and have helped hundreds recover from the scourge of addiction.
As an individual I’m straightforward, consistent, and resolute in my actions and behaviours. My business background, leadership experience and community service have prepared me for the role of Mayor. I’ll act with integrity and compassion, while making the bold and sometimes hard decisions that are needed.
