I am dependable and willing to rise to a challenge. I am known for my willingness to say it as it is, conveying truth and facts. I am personable to most, respectful to all and their ideas and needs. Humility doesn’t escape me, as I continue to face my shortcomings and own my actions. I am accountable and responsible personally and outwardly.

Born in Victoria BC in 1964 to a military family, I am now a proud father of three young men, two of which are grown and fostering their own independence and way in this life. Having lived and grown a large family in Alberta, Manitoba, Quebec and now beautiful B.C., many folks from different origins and backgrounds across our diverse country have left a truly lasting impression on me. My own upbringing in the military family taught me the merit of being disciplined and to look for reasons of why something happened, not the excuses.

Past high school, and a few years of working wherever I was needed, I made my way into the electrical trade, upgrading my skills along the way through BCIT’s Automation-Industrial Controls program. My career then led me to many large projects throughout B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan, where I thrived in leadership roles, being responsible for labor and material with monthly values in the millions of dollars. Deadlines with expectations helped hone my interpersonal skills, accountability and responsibility. I have a strong ability for quick and astute decision-making with proven success, and readily employ these skills in my desire to help others succeed in their own endeavours.

I enjoy sports and the outdoors through fishing, golfing and off-road motorcycle riding. The physical taxation on the body and accomplishments of performing always leave me grateful for the ability to enjoy life.

My nature is of a conservative mindset and a motto of live-and-let-live, allowing everyone their choices that are not an impediment to someone else’s. I present myself as your candidate for the People’s Party of Canada in Abbotsford.
