He believes in taking a planning approach and examines the retirement, tax and estate needs of his clients to develop a comprehensive solution for their needs. The first step he takes with every client is to listen carefully to their story, needs, and goals for the future. He takes the time to simplify complex concepts so clients can understand all available options, and be a part of every decision.

Commerce degree from Lakehead University and 25+ years of industry experience, equip him to build sound portfolios that prioritize the preservation of your wealth while working steadily towards your goals.
