Family is central to everything I stand for and believe in. I want my children to grow up in a supportive and inclusive society with every equal opportunity to learn and grow and thrive.
I was born near Guelph and grew up in small town Ontario along the shores of Lake Huron. My education brought me to Toronto where I ultimately found work and the love of my life. After starting our family, my wife and I agreed that a smaller city is where we wanted our children to grow up. Guelph's welcoming community, active arts and culture scene and access to nature are all things we embrace.
While in Toronto, I helped to establish our neighbourhood association and became active in local politics. After a violent crime occurred in our neighbourhood, I joined the local Community Police Liaison Committee to represent our community and worked with them to develop new solutions and build engagement.
I am currently active with the Lilliput Land Nursery School in Guelph and am the Secretary & Vice-President of the Board.
I am not someone who stands idly by waiting for someone else to act. With the lack of public engagement in the recent provincial election and now seeing so few candidates step forward for this upcoming municipal election I decided it was the right time for me to do something. I am ready to serve and humbly submit my name for Upper Grand District School Board Trustee.
