I was raised in the Township in my early years and attended elementary school in Phelpston before our family moved to Barrie in the late 1950’s. My career started in broadcast television and I had the opportunity of working with many of the pioneers of the business. My career progressed into senior management positions in entertainment related industries and I had the fortune to establish and grow new businesses as entertainment technology advanced. After working for a number of years with international companies I returned to my roots and bought a small farm in Springwater in 1997.

I became involved in the Grenfel Recreation Board when I first moved here and served as chair for a number of years and was part of the team that built the pavilion and ice rink. I became more involved in the Township first as a member and then Chair of the Committee of Adjustment. 

I have a wonderful and supportive wife of 46 years, Lorraine, 5 children and 10 grandchildren. I still teach part time at Georgian College and have a specialty in entrepreneurship, and conduct various workshops for new and growing businesses. I am quite pleased and proud to be Mayor of this marvelous Township of Springwater.
