I have more than 20 years’ experience in the investment industry and my Bachelor’s degree in Economics from York University. Prior to embarking on my investment career, I spent several years travelling and working around the world, which helped me to better understand people, their behavior and their cultures. I also worked for years as a semi-professional musician, playing the drums and piano.
My interest in investing began in elementary school, after hearing the noted investor/businessman/politician/coroner Dr. Morton Shulman speak. He sparked my life-long fascination with the markets. I started my investment career with Burns Fry/BMO Nesbitt Burns. In December 2005 I joined a smaller boutique firm that ultimately evolved into Macquarie Private Wealth, which was acquired by Richardson GMP in 2013.
In my personal time, I sit on the Board of the Elmvale Foundation, a federally registered charity that promotes environmental education, and actively support the Arthritis Society and SickKids Foundation. In the past, I also sat on the Board of EMMA Analytical, a scientific research company focusing on x-ray spectrometry.
