Financial Advisor | Manulife Securities Incorporated

Life Insurance Advisor | Manulife Securities Insurance Inc.


My twenty-years of experience as a licensed Financial Advisor with Quirion Financial Services and Manulife Securities Incorporated, and Life Insurance Advisor with Manulife Securities Insurance Inc., provides me with comprehensive knowledge and skills to help clients with securities and insurance products.

I have a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Lakehead University along with the designation of Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and a member of the Canadian Institute of Financial Planners. One of my basic beliefs is the important role advisor-client relationship plays in making informed and confident financial decisions. 

Planning your future, building wealth and reducing taxes requires a mutual effort to align personal and financial goals. My experiences and perspectives from different life events and market cycles are beneficial when working together. 

One such life event was during the downturn of the forestry sector and closure of a pulp mill along the Northshore. Working with families in transition I developed programs to assist former employees in deciding on the company pension plans, examining options and providing custom solutions. 

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, I enjoy everything the area offers from camping to hunting, motorcycle riding through  backroads, hockey, gardening and especially spending time with my wife and two children.

Financial Advisor | Manulife Securities Incorporated



My career as a Financial Advisor is driven by a passion to help people see different perspectives of life through the changing lens of  investing, wealth creation and retirement planning.

Today, securities markets are more and more complex with new opportunities for investing, greater access to information and more ways to interact with the market. Reliance on a skilled Financial Advisor is essential. You can’t go it alone, it’s a team effort to build and protect wealth.

Every day, for the last 20+ years, clients meet with me to share personal and family situations, life style goals and investment ideas. My greatest pleasure is listening, learning and creating the right investment plans.

As a Financial Advisor I am skilled in using Financial software programs to help find the most suitable investments for you. My success is based on technology, research and foresight.  

My expertise is in understanding the upside of market movements, and building in protection for market corrections’ – a skill set refined over many years of hard work and dedication. 

I hold a designation as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and am a licensed Financial Advisor with  Manulife Securities Incorporated, with 22-years’ experience serving clients. 

But I am not all work, I also have time to relax and restore. Hiking and exploring Northwestern Ontario, enjoying sunny days playing golf and watching my son play hockey are some of my favourite activities.
