I have been a member of DNV Council since 2018.
As a lifelong resident of the District, I have always had a passion for this community and I call the Lynn Valley area home with my wife, Signy, our two young children Henry and Morgan, and our dog Lola.
Throughout my time on Council I have enjoyed the opportunity to get to know my community on a whole other level, having served as the DNV Council representative on the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, the DNV Library Board, as well as the Museum and Archives Commission. I also represented the DNV on the Metro Vancouver Industrial Lands Strategy Task Force.
Outside of Council, my "day job" is in advertising. My career in advertising sales started at the North Shore News, shortly after university, where I worked with a variety of North Shore businesses on their marketing campaigns. From community newspapers, I moved to broadcast media where I worked for 11 years as an account manager in radio and television advertising at Corus Entertainment (parent company to CKNW radio and Global Television), and I currently work for the Lamar Advertising Company in out-of-home transit advertising.
I have also had a passion for music and the arts my whole life, having sung in various choirs since I was five years old. I studied music education at UBC, completing my Bachelor of Music in 2007. While my entrepreneurial spirit has taken my career in a different path, I continue to have a passion for music and have been a member of the world renowned Chor Leoni Men's Choir for over 14 years.
As much as I am passionate about the Arts, I also have a passion for active, healthy living and I am an avid cyclist and triathlete, having completed seven IRONMAN triathlons and over a dozen marathons.
