Who Am I?

I’m a father (to 3 awesome kids!), husband, filmmaker, podcaster, musician and homeowner in South Marysburgh. I grew up in a small northern Ontario pulp-and-paper town called Smooth Rock Falls where I had a fantastic childhood. I spent my high school years in Cobourg before going to the University of Waterloo where I earned my Bachelor of Environmental Studies. I moved to Vancouver in 1997 and completed my film degree at Capilano University.

I have spent the last 15 years both working in the film industry in various ways (tv, feature film, corporate, music videos), but also spent some of those years building and running my own book store.  Through these experiences, I understand the way both larger businesses and corporations work as well as the plight and difficulties facing small business owners.  Since moving to the County I have become self-employed again, running County Productions, which has provided insight into the various business and charitable elements here in Prince Edward County.

My hobbies include podcasting (my show The Double Stop has over 100 episodes and counting), playing bass (I’ve been playing for about 30 years so if you’re looking for anyone, give me a call), fishing, and working on my house.  Most of all, though, I’ve been enjoying the time with my kids in the Country, providing for them the type of childhood I so adored.
