I come from a real estate family. I have uncles who are top realtors in Victoria year after year for 30 years running, others are project managers for major developers, and my grandpa founded Town and Country real estate and insurance. Growing up with my mom mainly, most weekends were spent with her going to open houses where we got ideas for the live-in flips we often did. Naturally, I was excited to start my first live-in flip investment in 2012 at the young age of 24.
My career has mainly been in business development. For 6 years while I was in my 20s I worked for an aviation company building their distribution channels from scratch which turned into a global network and created millions in revenue.
Two of the top things I got from this were 1) the ability to genuinely connect with anyone quickly and what it takes to build a trusting relationship. And 2) I often worked with domestic and foreign militaries. In fact, my boss was a US Air Force Colonel and working with him taught me the benefit of good leadership, systems, discipline, and a very strong worth ethic – “the job was never done”.
In The REINVESTORS, I’m the analytical, detailed and data/stat guy. I am experience driven, resilient, and the risk averse one who believes that anything is possible with the right team and execution plan. I love connecting with people. I love the thrill of the hunt. And I want to grow into being a very successful developer.
In life, I love hockey and anything that has to do with adrenaline or the outdoors. I’m engaged to my best friend, Rebecca, and we are thinking that a Bali wedding with close friends and family sounds perfect. Running relaxes me and I love a good challenge, even if that means “failing” at it because I know I’ll get something out of it.
We are on a mission to financially educate 1 million people and inspire them to invest in real estate so they can live a more fulfilled life.
Coming from a trades heavy family I always knew working with my hands was a gift. I quickly realized I was talented at understanding electricity and at 16 started my Electrical Apprenticeship. By 22 I was a Red Seal Journeyman and running crews and multiple job sites. I always knew buying a house early was the dream and at the young age of 24 I bought my first property. Being a single guy working long days, I quickly realized that since I was rarely home, I could rent out my house and make an extra $500/month. This is what started the idea of building a passive income lifestyle.
I went through a life changing experience shortly after buying my house, where I lost my mentor and best friend. I realized that life was too short to work Monday to Friday 8-4 for the next 40 years and that if I was going to change the pattern in my family and life, it had to be now. I invested in a lot of education on how to continue building passive income and fell in love with the process, opportunity, and freedom that being an entrepreneur gave to me.
In The REINVESTORS, I’m the visionary and big opportunity guy. I just love being optimistic and creative towards which direction we can take the company. I often commit first and figure out the details after, making it a nice compliment to Steve’s analytical approach. I have a strong sense of purpose and am passionate about the mission we are on to create more freedom in everyday lives.
In life, I am a sports freak and outdoor enthusiast. I played soccer for 15 years but have found interest in learning some of the more analytical sports such as golf, curling and tennis. If i’m not watching sports or buying real estate, I am usually out for a hike, camping, or spending time at the beach. Although my mission is to build a successful real estate investment company, my dream would be to own a fishing charter company. Being on the water, watching the sun rise and reeling in a big fish is truly the best feeling in the world.
