I love living in Ward 1 with my wife, Judy. We are actively connected in the Barrie community.
When I was a student I was very involved in university governance. Since that time, I have been busy raising a family and running several businesses. I have travelled extensively in Europe and Central America and have volunteered and lived in Africa for three months in 2006.
I have a degree in Civil Engineering and a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies. Since 1990 I have run a land use planning consulting firm and also operate Greenwise Solutions Inc. which distributes natural odour control products produced here in Barrie to industry.
I have worked as a senior manager with the Province of Ontario Ministry of Transportation and as a senior partner with a large consulting firm.
For the past 40 years I have worked with many municipalities in Ontario as a planning consultant doing design and policy development. I am heavily involved with renewable energy and am an experienced mediator and arbitrator.
