I was born in Hamilton and enjoyed growing up in Stoney Creek. For 25 years I worked in sales as a top salesman. I enjoyed riding horses, raising my family, playing music, and volunteering as a youth softball coach and umpire. I then started a second career in property maintenance with the Hamilton Conservation Authority. For more than 10 years I have been a donor and occasional volunteer with Liberty For Youth. When I retired two years ago, I was able to offer my time on a more consistent basis and volunteered weekly in property maintenance. Now, in my role at the 7R’s Ranch, I am passionate about keeping the property beautiful and safe for animals, visitors, and most of all the youth we serve.
