Just like almost everyone else here in the Oceanside Area, I come from somewhere else. In 1994 my family decided to make the big move all the way across this big beautiful country from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Nanaimo. I’ve had the opportunity to see what the rest of Canada has to offer and Vancouver Island is the place to be.

After graduating from high school in Nanaimo I met my wife. She is one of the few people I know that was born and raised here in the Oceanside Area and still lives here today. When we were looking to put down roots, we decided on Parksville and bought our first place in 2004. I instantly fell in love with this piece of paradise.

I pursued my post secondary education at Vancouver Island University and graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with a marketing focus. I cut my teeth as a young Promotions Director at Island Radio, which operates 88.5 The Beach and 99.9 The Lounge, where I learned the importance of strong marketing and community involvement. I moved on to work as the Territory Manager for the North Island with Canadian Blood Services where I learned the importance of customer service and human connections. The combination of my education and experience made the transition into becoming a REALTOR© very exciting.

I absolutely love where I live. You can find me out soaking up the sun on the beach, teeing off on one of the many golf courses, walking my dogs on any number of trails or working in my garden on any given day. It's both a beautiful place to raise a family and to retire. I look forward to working with you and showing you everything the Oceanside Area has to offer.
