Name an experience that has positively motivated you?
In college I was ready to leave, just didn’t feel right. My close friend who is also from Chatham convinced me to stay to the end of the week. I did, that day we had a guest lecture from a professional sports photographer. That day changed the course of my life.

Went to Fanshawe College. Moved back home, worked at Navistar. Then free-lanced and worked for the Chatham Sun.
What are you doing now?
What is your #1 reason for choosing Chatham-Kent as “home”?
My wife and I moved to London as I was working there. We then started a family and with the arrival of our second child we knew we wanted to be closer to family. So we sold our house and found a beautiful home in Chatham that was more than we were looking for. Our #1 reason was family. Traffic, cost of homes and a slower pace of life were all very close though.
