Michael began his career in the investment industry in 1993 after graduating from Memorial University with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Recognizing his passion for the financial industry, Michael pursued and received the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation in 1998 - one of the most prestigious designations in the world of finance.

Prior to joining RBC Dominion Securities, Michael worked for Midland Walwyn, Merrill Lynch, and CIBC Wood Gundy (a result of industry consolidation). While employed with Merrill Lynch, Michael was given the opportunity to spend some time at their training centre in Princeton, New Jersey, where he was educated on the use of investment strategies for high - net - worth investors.

Fortunate to have lived and worked in such countries as Scotland, England, the Philippines, Singapore and Czech Republic, he possesses a unique perspective about the importance of investing internationally that shapes the portfolios he builds for clients.

Michael's education and sophisticated financial experience compliment his skill in wealth preservation and growth for CEO's, business owners, professionals and affluent Canadian families. Michael understands that wealth requires professional attention as it plays an important role in our society. Most importantly, it requires professional attention that acknowledges all your goals in life - not just financial goals.

Michael is married with two children. Outside of the office, he enjoys cycling, spending time with his family and travelling when he can.
