Academic Background

BPE, Sport Science, University of New Brunswick

MBA (current), Wilfrid Laurier University


After graduating university, I moved to Torontoand worked there for two years.Coming from a small town in New Brunswick, I enjoyed life in 'the big city', butI wanted more. So I was off to South Korea in June '01 for an adventure.I stayed in Korea for 10 years, moving from a small languageschool to a public high school, then university, and finally starting my own school which I ran with mywife while we built our family. In 2011, we felt it was time to come home, so we sold our school and started looking for options.We settled in Kitchener and I came to Laurier to co-ordinate the Pre-MBA Graduate Study Preparation Program.

I feel that students have a distinct advantage coming to Laurier. Having travelled fairly extensively myself, I realize that the Waterloo region truly offers a small town feeling with a big city convenience. We are very happy to have settled here and I look forward to many years of personal and professional growth at Laurier.
