Tell us about yourself:
I’m from the north, originally hailing from Mackenzie, but I’ve been in Dawson Creek for most of my adult life and proudly call it home. I’ve got a bachelor’s degree from Thompson Rivers University and spent my time singing in bands here before I had a family. I have a 15 month old daughter named Abby, a fiancé named Jennifer, who’s been very supportive and encouraging throughout this whole process, despite not being very keen on politics herself, and a hound dog named Tammy.
How do you spend your time around Dawson Creek for leisure?
I like checking out live, local music or reading when I can. When I’m with my daughter I’ll hit up the Kenn Borek Aquatic Centre or make use of one of our many great local parks, and occasionally try and find some time to go hiking.
Why are you running?
I’ve been very involved in the community in my time here, and as great as it’s been for me, both personally and professionally, I want it to be that much better for my daughter and nieces and nephew. I think with my passion and talent for engaging with people and my varied professional and volunteer experience I could be a valuable voice on council.
We will be following with full interviews tomorrow! And don’t forget the DC Mirror council candidate mega-debate at Encana Events Centre Thursday Oct. 11.
