Engineering in Real Estate
My career in Real Estate began when I was 23 and also going to university. I was the guy in the lectures who had a pager on his belt. A couple of years later I moved to Vancouver to learn appraisal and pursue my interest in Urban Land Economics at UBC. Upon graduation I was licensed as an agent and found marketing property was fulfilling & fun. Later pursuits of education lead me to complete a Masters in Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering in Land Information Systems. I enjoyed several years as systems analyst and project manager on various projects across the country and internationally.
In 2003 my passion for Real Estate was rekindled and I returned to doing what I enjoy most – using my knowledge to help people with their Real Estate. That same year I was fortunate to meet the love of my life Kate, here in Calgary.

Science in Real Estate
The opportunity to design and build our new home was the start of my passion for real estate. In 2008, I became a licensed Real Estate Associate. I hold an internationally recognized Diploma in Interior Decorating & Design which allows me to provide additional support to clients to achieve their real estate goals.
After obtaining a Masters Degree in Science at Leeds University, England I emigrated to Canada and chose Calgary as my home. I enjoyed a rewarding 15 year career at Safeway/ Sobeys Head Office specializing in auditing & food safety. This allowed me to develop my skills in managing urgent situations whilst maintaining attention to detail and having my client’s needs foremost.
When having the chance to step away from real estate I enjoy working in the local community garden, volunteering for the Making Changes Association and spending time with my partner, Frank.
