About Me

Sure I love the law and I have a great job, but I also enjoy getting out and getting away from my desk. To balance out the negative impact that riding a desk can have, I've taken up triathlons. I've completed Ironman CDA in 2008 and 2006. My three kids are awesome and keep Dad busy. They make me proud to be their father.
