BIO



I am a lifelong resident of Niagara. My family moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake when I was a teenager. My volunteer and work experience has provided me an appreciation of the Town's unique culture, our historical landscapes, the important role of agriculture and the natural heritage of our community. I have a strong connection and a valuable understanding of our beautiful Town.







For that reason, I stand to represent residents and businesses on Niagara-on-the-Lake Town Council as the next Lord Mayor. I was a Town Councillor from 2008 to 2014. I later took those aspirations to the Regional level and have represented Niagara-on-the-Lake residents as the Town's Regional Councillor for the past four years. Several of the committees I have been on include: Chair, Niagara-on-the-Lake Community & Development Services Committee, Chair, Niagara-on-the-Lake Urban Design Committee Chair, Region of Niagara Budget Committee of the Whole Chair, Region of Niagara Housing Committee Member, Niagara-on-the-Lake Municipal Heritage Committee, Member, Niagara-on-the-Lake Committee of Adjustment Member, Region of Niagara Public Works Committee Member, Region of Niagara Planning & Economic Development Member, Region of Niagara Development Charges Policy Review Task Force Member, Region of Niagara Procurement Advisory Committee Member, Region of Niagara Linking Niagara Transit Committee. I attended Denis Morris High School and studied Business and Political Science at Brock University. My wife, Tammy and I have two sons, Nathan and Benjamin. With over 30 years business and volunteer experience, I have owned a local real estate brokerage, managed a large corporate firm in Toronto, and now work from my home office for a National Real Estate Company as Vice President of Brand Expansion.

  • Queen Street business owner, Real Estate Broker
