You've worked hard to create your wealth, we are here to be prudent stewards of it going forward.

Whatever your goals, my team and I will take the time to understand what you want to accomplish with your wealth. Whether you need assistance managing wealth for yourself, your family, your business, or your organization, I will lead a team of experts to ensure you get the professional advice you deserve. Currently, I work with business owners, executives and their families, professional and amateur athletes, non-profits, and Inuit organizations across Canada.


I am a leader in responsible and impact investing here in Canada; helping my clients plan and invest for a sustainable future. I am a member of the Responsible Investment Association, and am part of RBC's Global Responsible Investment Council. I am a member of the Impact Investment Committee at the Ottawa Community Foundation and the Investment Committee at the Hnatyshyn Foundation. I guest lecture at the Telfer School of Management on Responsible Investing, 

I hold an MBA in Business Strategy from the Telfer School of Management, and received a B. Comm M. Fin from the Sprott School of Business. I am also a level 3 candidate in the CFA program.

Prior to my business education, I was a world-class competitive athlete. I am a former member of the Canadian National kayak team and was an alternate on the 2012 Olympic Team. During my time on the team I was a member of the prestigious RBC Olympian program. I now sit on the board for the Canadian Athletes Now Fund (CANFund) and support the Canadian Olympic Committee's Game Plan Program with financial literacy courses.

When I reflect on my athletic career, I really do owe much of my success to my passionate coach and team of specialists I was so fortunate to work with. Working in unison with my coach, the specialists enhanced my training by adding their insights when it came to nutrition, strength, physiology and recovery. Collectively, we planned, reviewed, and modified my training so that I could consistently perform at the highest level. When it comes to your wealth management, I firmly believe that your wealth (and peace of mind) will benefit from a similar level of team dedication. Expert coordination of this financial team, together with my strategic application of my investment and wealth management knowledge, and preservation of the highest level of confidentiality, are my commitments to you.
