Before joining Fair Realty I spent two years with RE/MAX Central. Prior to RE/MAX, I was President and founder of Tel-Ad Advisors Ltd, a Financial Consultant with Merrill Lynch Canada and CIBC Wood Gundy, and a co-founder of BC Rubber Supply with my brother, Gerry. Earlier I was an Advertising Consultant and a District Sales Manager with Dominion Directory (BC Tel Yellow Pages), a sales rep for Copytron and a front end attendant with Central Park Shell. I was inducted into the Slo-Pitch National BC Hall of Honour in 2006 and my team, the Burnaby Barons, was inducted into the Burnaby Sports Hall of Fame, in 2008.
