Professional Background

In the eighties I worked in the aerospace industry, working in various aspects of a high tech corporation, including Purchasing, Contract Management, Program Management and as Director of Aerospace. In these roles I worked extensively in London, England, Munich, Germany, St. Louis, USA and New Jersey, USA. One of my most significant achievements was to capture contracts for large aerospace programs for the export market. I assisted in the sale of the company to another Aerospace Corporation and left the industry to pursue a new direction.

In the nineties I started a new corporation. As President and CEO I opened with just 7 employees and one product line. I was able to expand this to over 400 products and peaked at 85 employees. These products were sold to 42 countries world wide and allowed me to develop and bring to market many new products. I have since left this business though my son is actively producing many of these products in his own company.

My past ventures have given me the temperament and skill to successfully sell property. My extensive business background provides me with the skills I need to assist you with one of the most significant transactions you will make in your lifetime.

Personal Background

I was born in Almonte, Ontario and raised in Carleton Place. During my youth I was an avid swimmer and received my Instructor designate. I ran the swimming program at Riverside Park for several seasons and actually put my life saving skills to the test. My high school years were at the Carleton Place High School where I was an enthusiastic athlete. I played in all the major sports offered at the time and earned all my letters and I still have them tucked away.

In my young adulthood I began to buy, update and sell various properties, culminating in building a new home on the waterfront in Appleton. After selling this property I moved to Smiths Falls and built a new home on Bass Lake. I sold that also and now live in Smiths Falls.

I have two wonderful children that I am so proud of. My son has his own company in Smiths Falls and my daughter is a world class artist travelling both in Canada and Internationally for exhibits.

 

Personal Interests

I am an avid golfer with a local membership. I have two American cocker spaniels and enjoy a good hike on the local trails. I have taken various photography courses and have done many family weddings as well as nature and landscape photography with my Nikon equipment. In the evenings I enjoy time covering with my acoustic guitar. I also pride myself on a large collection of vinyl LP's that I play on my old stereo.

Community Involvement

I have spent two years serving on the board of the Mississippi Golf Club in Appleton as Financial Officer. I have also spent two years serving on the Smiths Falls Chamber of Commerce, both as a member and as President.

I instigated and was on the advisory board for the federal government to revise the Canadian variant of the Free Trade Agreement to allow small business contracts to be awarded within Canada only.

I took on various speaking engagements to the banking institutions on the impact of investment in small business.
