As a lifelong resident of the District, I've 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 13 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.
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 advertising campaigns to increase their exposure and sales. From community newspapers, I moved to broadcast media, CKNW radio, in 2008. I have now been an advertising account manager at Corus Entertainment (parent company to CKNW) for close to 10 years and I now represent Global BC Television, in addition to the four Vancouver based Corus radio stations.
I have a deep connection to our community, and I enjoy volunteering my time to support local causes. In particular, I have been a long-time supporter of North Shore Rescue and North Shore Neighbourhood House. In March I was honoured to co-host the 18th Annual North Shore Sport Awards.
My wife Signy and I are proud members of the Lynn Valley community and we can often be found out on the trails with our Yellow Lab, Lola.
