I have worked in the IT sector for 26 years, and lived in Summerland for over 20 years. My wife and I have raised our two daughters here, one of who is graduating this year, and the other attending UBCO. I love Summerland, and running for council is an opportunity for me to give back to a community that has given so much to me.

I have been involved with committees and sit on the board of directors of the Network Professional Association which has given me experience for this type of work. As a voter, I have felt disconnected from the decisions and direction of council.  I believe there are many opportunities to improve Summerland.

I have talked to a number of individuals who live here and there are many who have some great ideas to improve our community. I want to provide open, honest communications and work hard to provide you with the information you need to understand the issues.
