Who I am

Community Ties

I spent years of my childhood in West Vancouver and returned thirteen years ago to raise a family. My wife, my three young children and I now live in a house that we built in Ambleside. We are active members of the community and frequent the Community Centre, the Library, and various parks throughout the District. Two of my children attend Ridgeview Elementary and the eldest starts at West Van High this Fall.

Over the past seven years, while an active member of Council I have also been a member of the:

  • Community Engagement Committee (as chair for three years)

  • Memorial Library Board

  • Awards Committee

  • Community Grants Committee

  • North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues

  • Gleneagles Community Centre Advisory Committee 

  • Design Review Committee

  • Finance Committee

  • North Shore Emergency Management Office

  • Upper Lands Working Group

  • Field Sports Working Group

At a regional level, I have sat as a member of the Metro Vancouver Utilities Committee and then the Zero Waste Committee.  I have also been Mayor Smith’s alternate on the Translink Mayors’ Council and Integrated North Shore Transportation Planning Project.

Before being elected, I was a Director of the West Vancouver Community Centres Society and was a member of West Vancouver’s Community Engagement Committee.

I attended Ridgeview and Pauline Johnson Elementary Schools and started high school at West Vancouver High School. I learned to sail at the Hollyburn Sailing Club, learned to ski on the local mountains and my first job was delivering the North Shore News. West Vancouver was a wonderful place to grow up and I want to ensure that it continues to be, for all of our children.

Professional Experience & Education

For the past 16 years, I have worked as a litigator with the Department of Justice Canada, focusing on civil litigation. I also have extensive training in and experience with dispute resolution, including mediation, negotiation and arbitration.

I have a degree in Urban and Environmental Geography from the University of British Columbia and a law degree from the University of Victoria. I also studied International Law at the Universiteit Utrecht in the Netherlands. I clerked with Madam Justice Beverly McLachlin (now Chief Justice) at the Supreme Court of Canada and articled with John McAlpine, Q.C. I was called to British Columbia Bar in 1999.

I also have significant experience in the governance and operation of both government entities and non-profit organizations. While at the University of Victoria, I co-founded the Environmental Law Centre. I was also a founding Board member of Access Pro Bono, British Columbia’s leading non-government provider of free legal services.
