I am originally from Wiarton.  Small town boy – born and raised.

I have lived in Stratford for eighteen years now with my wife Lorrie and our twenty one year old son Danny.

Lorrie is a graphic artist and works in a sign shop in Stratford called Signs on Time – they are located on Lorne Ave.

Danny works in construction currently and sets up safety barriers on corners of highways across the province.

I am a Real Estate Broker/Manager for Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty in Kitchener.

I sold Real Estate for this Brokerage for six years before getting my Brokers licence and stepping into management four years ago.

I am a non-competing Broker/Manager which means I am not allowed to sell Real Estate under my contract.  My job is to hire, teach, train and support both our new and existing Realtors.

My goal with the Rotary Club is to become more engaged with the community that I live in, get a feeling of giving back and helping others, while at the same time fostering what I hope to be lifelong relationships with other like-minded people in our community.   The thoughts of eventually retiring in Stratford without knowing many people here is not one that I want to contemplate.  The best way I can think of to build relationships with the people of Stratford is to help them to achieve common goals.
