My passion for investing began in 1988, when I bought railroad shares with money I’d saved as a kid. (The shares remain lucrative; I have no plans to sell them.) Over the years, my investments have grown, and with them, my financial knowledge. I draw on my experience and learning to help my clients make informed and confident choices about their own situation.
While I attended the University of New Brunswick in the early 2000s, my father passed away suddenly, and, as executor of his estate, I learned the importance of planning for the unexpected and use of insurance.
I moved to Metro Vancouver and got married in 2007, soon after graduating with my BSc Software Engineering. I live in Richmond, working as an Edward Jones advisor, a role I’ve held since 2010. A father of two young daughters, I stay rewardingly busy volunteering with my eldest’s Ringette team. I’m also a member of BNI Connections, a business networking group with whom I’ve served as VP for three years, and am currently serving as President.
Over the years, I have worked to improve my ability to serve others, including earning my CFP® credential.
Helping clients with quality investments that stand the test of time means a great deal to me, as does helping them prepare for the unexpected. When you meet with me, rest assured I’ll put your interests first and work hard to help you reach your most important goals.
I enjoy working with a wide range of people, including: those who’ve saved for retirement (they remind me fondly of my parents and grandparents); families with children; as well as business people and professionals living full lives and wanting to make the most of their hard-earned money. I’m happy to work with clients’ lawyers, accountants, and others, as well as recommend professionals if they’re needed.
Complexities abound in life and in finances … I love simplifying them for others. I invite you to contact me and learn how I can do so for you.
