If I were to ask friends and family to describe me, they would likely say that I rarely sit still, and that I like to live life to its fullest. I am in constant pursuit of the perfect work/life balance. My days are spent between my office in Ottawa ( where as a corporate lawyer and business consultant some of my greatest career joys have come through helping businesses of all shapes and sizes take their ideas to the next level) and the Pine & Birch Ranch & Retreat (where you will invariably find me completing another hands-on project to enhance the experience of our valued guests). Some of my greatest memories at Pine & Birch include riding horses through the meadows of wild flowers, celebrating special occasions with my wife, hosting our three kids’ soccer teams for family BBQ’s, and organizing an annual retreat for the Men's Basketball team of my alma mater, the University of Ottawa. As a host, I get great pleasure from seeing guests from all over the world enjoy our retreat property as much as I do. I hope to welcome you at the front gates of Pine & Birch one day!
