Background

I have been providing wealth management consulting services to individuals, institutions, and families across Canada since 2004. I am originally from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia and currently reside in Halifax. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. We all value an active and community-focused lifestyle. My interests include running, hockey, golfing and surfing and I am an active volunteer with a variety of charities throughout Nova Scotia.

The foundation of my business is to establish and maintain meaningful working relationships with each of my clients through providing exceptional service and sound financial advice.

My Approach

I collaborate with my clients in the creation of a comprehensive financial strategy that addresses their complete financial situation. This disciplined process ensures they have a wealth management plan that is designed to help provide clarity both now and into the future.

Uncover your wealth personality

The distinct discovery process we use will take you through some behaviour questions and how you really make decisions. And when it's all done, a diagnostic using behavioural finance will take all that information, how we can work best with you and what the next steps are in creating your wealth strategy - prioritized by what matters to you. A wealth strategy which manages the important things like your retirement, your kid's education, your family cottage - not just your money.

It’s a question I hear from doctors and patients alike. There are so many factors to consider that it arguably becomes impossible to answer. In fact, the best answer to the question of restricting patients to one issue per visit may indeed be: “It depends.”
