I moved to Bowen when I was just a couple years old, and loved my childhood on this island. After finishing Bowen Island Community School, I commuted to Rockridge and West Van High before leaving Bowen for university. Before moving back to Bowen in 2014 and becoming a realtor with Dee, I worked as a high school and college history and geography teacher in Tasmania, Australia, and had other jobs in outdoors/mountaineering equipment sales, copper and gold exploration in Northern BC, and behind-the-scenes work in provincial and federal elections.
My hobbies include acting on stage with various Bowen theatre troupes, playing guitar, fly fishing, kayaking, soccer and travel. My favourite country to visit is Nicaragua, where I have visited in 2003, 2009 and 2013 doing community development and solidarity projects.
What I love the most about Bowen are the fascinating, fun, and often quirky people that make up our community.
