Eighteen months ago, I was elected as a city councillor. During that time, I gained a better understanding of the problems facing Campbell River. We are in an important time in our community. If we continue on our current path, we will come to the point of no return.

I have worked for 24 years in every sector of the aviation industry. During that time, I held many different management roles, which required me to perfect my public speaking skills, think on my feet and understand the importance of relationships. I am currently the Chief Pilot at Westcoast Helicopters. For eight years, I served as a member of the Campbell River Airport Authority.

My wife and I have two young children born in Campbell River. We are a very active family, and we enjoy organized sports, playing music, mountain biking and skiing. You often see us around town attending community events and activities or appreciating the outdoors. I am vested in all three generations (retirees, working professionals and families) to support a high quality of life for all in Campbell River.

Reason for running

Allow developers to increase the housing inventory with a diverse blend of housing options. Crackdown on the open drug scene and lawlessness happening downtown. Focus on efficiency and alternate sources of revenue instead of increasing taxes on homeowners and businesses.
