    I have been providing clients with financial planning, investment and insurance advice for more than 30 years. I completed my Certified Financial Planner designation in 1986, my Registered Financial Planner designation in 1987 and my Chartered Life Underwriters designation in 2008. Over the years I have served in various capacities in financial planning and insurance professional organizations. I am presently a member of the Conference of Advanced Life Underwriting, and have served on the local board of Advocis. In October of 2011 I was awarded the FELLOW OF FPSC TM distinction. In June 0f 2015 I was honoured to receive the Wealth Professional Advisor Lifetime Achievement Award. I remain committed to these professional organizations as well as my own continued education.

    In my role as advisor I find it very rewarding to help families reach their goals and dreams through careful planning and investing. I also devote time to sharing my experience, knowledge and leadership skills with other business people in the role of mentor.

    I was born and raised in the city of Regina, and I think it’s a great place to live. It is important to me to get involved and give back to my community. I am committed to the growth and development of the Saskatchewan Science Centre, and served on its board for six years. I am very interested in doing what I can to contribute to the success of this local institution, and I encourage you to pay a visit sometime!

    I am married with three children, and now three grandchildren. Of the many hats I wear, that of “Grandpa” is perhaps the most fun, and I look forward to watching my grandsons learn and grow here in our province.

    I graduated from Luther College in 1983, completed a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Saskatchewan in 1987 and earned my Certified Financial Planning Designation in 1996. In 2012, I was honoured to achieve the Elite Advisor designation, given to advisors whose clients have provided the highest ratings based on superior service and advice.

    Prior to joining the Tyler Group, I spent 20 years living and working as a Financial Advisor in Weyburn.  As a member of the Tyler Group team in Regina, I  also continue to provide service to my Weyburn clients.

    As an advisor with PEAK Investments I have a passion for independent financial advice. I work hard to coach my clients to do the right things by making sound financial choices based on the plan we’ve made together. I know through experience that my clients will be well rewarded for following a well laid out plan.
    In my spare time I enjoy various sports having spent many years coaching youth teams in Weyburn, including my two daughters’ volleyball teams. I also enjoy football and count myself as an avid Riders’ fan.

    In the community I have been involved with the Weyburn Young Fellows Club for the last 15 years. During that time I have served in various capacities, including President in 2005-2006. The motto of the club is “We Serve”. Being a member of this great organization has helped me fulfill my desire to give back to the community in which I live and work.
