I have lived most of my life in the Parry Sound area and grew up on Whitefish Lake, in what's now Seguin Township. My family operated Marshall Construction and I spent most summers as a teenager installing septic beds and backfilling basements for cottage owners throughout the area. Through this time in my early years, I started, quite inadvertently, to build connections with people that I still call friends and clients. When I started selling real estate in 1985, I already had an excellent familiarity of the area lakes and extensive connections with both the seasonal and year-round populations. My knowledge of the area is extensive: odds are that I know where one can launch a boat or suggest good fishing spots on several of the area lakes. Almost 30 years later, I'm happily married with three sons, a cat and a hyperactive golden doodle and live in Parry Sound. Even though I'm always busy with my real estate practice, I always manage to take the time to spend with the family and like to enjoy time exploring the region with our boat and of course, my camera. Currently, I'm serving a four-year term as a Councillor on the Parry Sound Town Council, and serve on the West Parry Sound Museum Board, the Parry Sound Library Board and the Waterfront Advisory Committee. In addition, I'm a Past President of the Parry Sound Real Estate Board, and Past Director of the Canadian Real Estate Association’s (CREA) MLS® and Technology Committee. I have several other interests outside of my real estate career. Music has always been one of my passions and I have played piano and guitar with local bands. Gardening, fishing and astronomy are also hobbies I enjoy, and I'm a lifelong diehard Leafs fan.
