I was born and raised in the small community of Bradford just North of Toronto. As a young boy I learned from my parents the value of hard work and savings and had my first job working at the local grocery by the age of 15. When I was a young adult I lost my my father to illness leaving my family in financial hardship. These life experiences were inspirations for me to become a financial advisor and to help individuals and their families manage their financial affairs. I am passionate about helping individuals with all aspects of there finances so that they can enjoy financial freedom and peace of mind.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter and I do volunteer work with a community organization.
