He calls Toronto home base, but that didn’t stop him from taking off to study at Western University in London Ontario before finishing his Bachelor of Business Management from Griffith University on Australia’s Gold Coast. Since then he has been all over the world, traveling to all 7 continents by the age of 29!


Professionally he spent 2 years as an outdoor adventure guide, and has run his own successful franchise for 4 years until he was promoted to GM for the Vancouver, Canada region. At the end of 2013 he made his way into Playa del Carmen for a new career with American Realty in Paradise and his new home away from home.
