Born in Edmonton
Graduated High School and was employed by the Lethbridge Herald for a few years before obtaining Postsecondary education from two highly acclaimed Alberta Post-Secondary Schools:
Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT)
Telecommunications Engineering Technology
Lethbridge Community College (LCC) now renamed to Lethbridge College.
Automotive Service Technology
LCC Student Representative while attending LCC
While at the LCC I was blessed to be elected as representative and a voice for my fellow students where their voice(s) would BE HEARD on the LCC Student Council. I believed then as I still believe now, that the people, public servants represent, have the final say and the voter is always right.
Blue Collar Worker
I am a blue collar worker that understands what it is like to work hard every day to earn a paycheck, and to balance the household budget on what I make.
I also believe my position at the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) as a rescuer and a frontline customer service representative, looking after the needs of the members of AMA, that I am well suited for a position on Edmonton City Council, as a public servant, representative and, a VOICE for and of the people.
I am a person that lives and breathes customer service. Customer service is not a set of clothes that one puts on in the morning and takes off at the end of the day. Helping others succeed is in my DNA and I believe fully that being a representative and public servant (of all the people), in a position on Edmonton City Council is an extension of the customer service I provide to people while performing my duties at AMA and in the community. I wear the mantle of customer service 24/7 365 days a year and will do the best, I am able to, as the voice of Ward 8 representing everyone not just a few.
I seek your support and input because I believe:
” Inclusion is better it makes us stronger, and working together we can always achieve more.”
Here is a famous quote that sums up my belief in the power of the people.
“Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I would like to add:
Democracy is not just a word, it is people in action, stepping up to the plate to participate. Democracy will continue to live and thrive as long as active people are alive to BE HEARD.

I Love the fact Edmonton is built on and around the beautiful North Saskatchewan River. I kayak, canoe on the river quite regularly as well as cycle along its lush, verdant banks.
Here is an article I wrote in the August 2017 issue of the Rat Creek Press:
On Monday October 16, 2017 (9 a.m. until 8 p.m.)
I am seeking your support to be your Ward 8 VOICE on Edmonton City Council, where as your public servant and your representative, all your voice(s) will:
