I have been involved in two Companies for significant periods of time during my working career. 3M Canada for 27 years and Power Vac Professional Duct Cleaning for the last 23 years. Both of these have offered significant challenges and opportunities for growth.

My involvement in service for the community began in the 1970’s when we moved our family to Bowmanville and joined the Kinsmen Club which was a service club for young men under the age of 40. That led to a project to offer a T-ball program which led to coaching rep baseball and hockey, and ultimately to involvement at the executive level of the Eastern Ontario Baseball Association.

When we moved back to Toronto, we began to support the Rotary Club of Toronto West in their projects for youth and that led to an invitation to breakfast and finally to my joining the club.
