My first real career was as a mortgage underwriter for the Royal Bank of Canada. I did this for about 10 years. I enjoyed the work and it was incredible experience, however it lacked the creative side I was craving for.
Ultimately I left that position and decided to take the Web Analyst diploma program offered at UBC.
Upon graduating from there I took a position within the credit union system. In my spare time I created/designed many websites as a side business. Many of which are still going strong.
Concurrent to this, I designed our own brand of underwear and gymwear. I am still proud of that brand even after selling it off 5 years ago. Google Sweat Under Gear and it still ransk up there in the searches.
All of those past experiences have a huge impact on how I add value to my real estate clients.
I am an island boy at heart. Born in Nanaimo. Spent my youth traveling to the island hundreds of times to visit my huge family of aunts, uncle’s, cousins and my grandparents.
As some of you know I’m a physique competitor (currently on hiatus – might make a comeback one day) having done 5 shows 5 years in a row. I am a certified fitness trainer (obtained my certification through ACE) I’ve won various medals and I’ve also come home empty handed. It is really about the journey and meeting the amazing other competitors.
I am a cosplayer and make all my own costumes. Some of them very elaborate. Check out my Instagram feed for more on that.
Currently as well as being a realtor, I run a very successful Airbnb business and I work PT as a junior landscape designer.
I love to bake. Mostly cakes and cupcakes. I also enjoy making other fun desserts. See my IG (my prefered SM account) for pics of my baking creations.
