I was born and raised in Muskoka before moving to Guelph to attend university, pursuing a BComm major with a specialization in real estate and housing.
I fell in love with Guelph and the surrounding Tri-city area of Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo. These cities provided everything I needed; from large corporations, tech companies and a plethora of employers in every industry to parks and nature reserves, ski hills, restaurants, and plenty of clubs, bars, and pubs to enjoy the enticing nightlife.
I strongly believe in the values of equality, selflessness, and loving one’s neighbour. My parents raised me to respect my elders, mind my manners, and always be thankful for the food on my plate and the roof over my head. I take on many passions such as writing, public speaking, motivational tapes, and real estate investing. If I’m enjoying some downtime, you’d find me reading or playing some John Mayer on my Maple and Rosewood Takamine.
I am a firm believer in the importance of home. Not in the sense of four walls and a roof, but the idea of having a safe space you can unwind in at the end of the day. Home was always the most important part of my life growing up because I struggled with stress and anxiety on a daily basis, home was the light in the darkness. A place where you can feel safe, relax on the couch, make memories with your family, and feel anchored by the comfort your home brings you each day.
My father was a chef and told me as a child, “you’re going to eat three meals every day for the rest of your life, so it’s a good idea to learn how to cook!” Now, I can’t crack an egg with one hand for the life of me, but I took to heart the lesson he was teaching me and I apply that same philosophy to real estate; if you’re going to wake up and go to bed every day in your home and spend a majority of your time within it, then it needs to be a place you feel comfortable and happy in.
