I strive for a calm, disciplined approach to my mediations, hopefully instilling in clients a sense of safety, control, and focus on the future. The first mediation training I took was 22 days from the Resolution Skills Centre in Winnipeg - a high quality organization earning me a Mediation Skills Certificate as well as duplicate and other credits for course offered by the Justice Institute of BC.

Course taken at JIBC:
Family Violence: Impact on Separation & Divorce
Effects of Separation & Divorce on Children
Family Justice Services in BC
Mediated Agreements & Related Court Orders

Civil Procedures

Previous to starting mediation full time, I combined teaching English as an Additional Language [aka ESL] to immigrants and refugees in Winnipeg. This experience broadened my appreciation of the challenges facing newcomers and also sharpened my skills when working with different cultures.

I enjoy skiing, golf, walking with my wife and our dog along the north Fraser and seeing our grand kids.
