DEDICATED, PERSONAL SERVICE
As your real estate advisor, my promise is that your goals will always be my focus. I work with care, skill, honesty, and ethical integrity.
My Scotch/Irish and Ukrainian ancestors immigrated to Canada in the 1800s. However, I grew up in Encinitas, a small town on the coast of North San Diego County, California. After university in Northern California, and following a stint in the Peace Corps in Pakistan as a volunteer trainer of English teachers, I moved to Prague, Czech Republic, where I worked in advertising from 1991 to 1999. I met my wife Veronika there. In 2003 I "repatriated" to Canada to make a family and home in Victoria, BC. We have two boys, age 11 and 13.
My family enjoys the nature and the outdoors, and we regularly get out hiking and camping. My great passion is surfing, which I started at age four and took up seriously at age 11. Hobbies include cycling, blues harmonica, and poetry. Interests include jazz, film, science, history, and philosophy. I am a member of the Odd Fellows Victoria, a charitable organization established in Victoria over 150 years ago; a member of the Surfrider Foundation, an environmental organization; and I support Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), Amnesty International, among other charities supporting the environment and human rights.
