My wife and I moved to Victoria in 1987 with two kids and selected Colwood as the place we wanted to live and raise our family. I had purchased an interest in a consulting engineering firm and established an office in Colwood.
Over the years our family grew to four, we eventually moved to Metchosin before returning to Colwood several years ago and we have enjoyed and participated in the local minor sport and school systems.
In my business career I was able to grow the firm, eventually becoming an owner of the Victoria office, first individually and later with some excellent partners. The firm specialized in municipal engineering projects and we were active in many phases of the local sewer system, Royal Bay, Royal Roads University, Juan de Fuca (and later Westshore) Parks and Recreation and numerous other local projects.
A few years ago I was able to retire and now have the time and energy to put into the community that we call home. I believe that my business background and previous engineering knowledge will give me a valuable and different perspective at the council table.
My goals will be to maintain and enhance the quality of life that we are blessed with here, to be fiscally responsible and to further the creation of the great City of Colwood.
