I grew up in Burlington, Ontario where I now live with my wife Angela and our two sons Colton and Luca. I have been interested in sports my whole life playing hockey, football, training in martial arts and riding and racing mountain bikes. I have always had a passion to try and help people, I have volunteered in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ethiopia and Kenya providing manual therapy and nutrition education. I now spend most of my spare time cycling, training, hiking, camping and spending time with my family and friends.
I completed an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from McMaster University. I worked as a Kinesiologist in a physiotherapy setting for 4 years while I attended the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy where I received a Master in Practice Diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences. The M.OMSc Program is a 4 year, professional manual osteopathic designation. I am a member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association (OOA). The OOA is a professional association recognized by the Canadian insurance industry.
