I grew up in Whitby in the late 1950s when the population of the town was similar to Minden and Haliburton. After high school I worked for 15 years in commercial real estate in Toronto. During the 1980s and 1990s I spent another 15 years in the banking industry, while obtaining my B.A. and then my Masters in Environmental Studies.
Before joining Century 21 Granite Realty Group Inc. three years ago, I worked with Bank of Montreal as a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA). I have in-depth experience in issues concerning identity theft and mortgage fraud, as well as the environmental assessment process and sewage systems. My work history and education have helped to further my analytical skills and my ability to make sound judgements, both of which are put to good use in the listing and buying process.
I will take the time to talk to you about the current market conditions and any emerging market trends and the time to provide you with feedback after each showing, no matter what Realtor shows your property. With these attributes, together with my genuine enjoyment of my work, you can feel confident that I will always be working enthusiastically in your best interests.
In 1989 I returned to the University of Toronto to complete my undergraduate degree which I had started in 1972. I worked full time and attended classess part time. In order to finance my education, I held part time jobs as a Property Manager, a Waste Auditor, as well as a Flight Instructor at the Oshawa Flying Club. In 1995 I obtained my B.A. and immediately enrolled in York University's Master in Environmental Studies program. I worked in a number of complementary fields and completed my degree (M.E.S.) in 1997.
In 1999 I joined Bank of Montreal as an IT Auditor and obtained my professional designation as a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) shortly thereafter. My work at BMO Financial involved auditing the systems infrastructure projects to ensure that proper IT controls were employed to protect the privacy and information of the customer.

I have been actively involved in real estate for my entire working career; first in commercial real estate in downtown Toronto with Oxford Development Group, and now in a more personal capacity in the residential and cottage industry. My professional interests continue to be around environmental issues that affect Haliburton County.
No, I wasn't born in Haliburton. In fact, I wasn't born in Canada. I was born in Ulm, Germany, a 12th century walled city on the banks of the Danube River. Ulm is home to the highest church steeple in the world, the Munster. The steeple measures 530 feet and contains 768 steps. The church is a famous example of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture and is typically and mistakenly described as a cathedral. It is not, since it has never been the seat of a Bishop. The final stairwell to the top (known as the 3rd Gallery) is a tall, spiraling staircase that has barely enough room for one person.
In 2003 I started up these stairs, the first time I had been back to Germany since 1957. I made it about one third of the way before my vertigo couldn' take any more. The narrow staircase has windows on each level that are openings with 500 year old steel bars. My sense of falling out was too much and I started back down. Unfortunately, I crossed over (there is 1 down staircase and 1 up staircase) right at the place where the organ pipes emerge, and right at the point when they were starting their noon concert. Now this is a memory I won't forget!
Outside of my real estate life, I enjoy kayaking, fishing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. I have been an avid slalom and trick waterskier and spent my younger years downhill skiing. If you have any questions about the lakes in Haliburton or the outdoor activites, just drop me a line and I would be happy to email you lake or topo maps.
I am a past Board Director of the Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre in Haliburton. If you've not been into the Gallery, I encourage you to come in and enjoy this part of Haliburton's history. Volunteers and staff of the Gallery believe that art inspires and enriches us. We believe art is an essential part of a healthy and prosperous community. We believe everyone in the Haliburton Highlands should have the opportunity to experience and enjoy the creative arts. Please come in to the Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre the next time you are in town. We are located in the old station at Head Lake Park. Or, visit the website at: http://www.railsendgallery.com/
