My desire to help entrepreneurial families has shaped my professional development, from my tax expertise to my charitable work, including a focus on trust advisory and administration.

I have helped many families start new or growing businesses and often assist in their ongoing business affairs.  

I have experience in all areas of Canadian tax law, with particular emphasis on business reorganizations and asset protection. I am also an officer of a startup technology company and sit on the Board of Trustees of several private family trusts.
