Meet me in this short video

I graduated from university in 1990 and immediately entered the investment and insurance business. Since that time I have earned my Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations. I live in Waterloo with my wife and 4 children.

Whether you are at the beginning of your saving career or nearing retirement, my team and I can help you achieve your goals. Savings products such as RRSPs are key components of any financial picture, however, that may only be a small piece of the puzzle. My team and I have developed extensive experience in financial and insurance-related products and services that can help you achieve financial security.

We provide our extensive knowledge and services to families and small-business owners throughout southern Ontario, with a particular focus on Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph.
