Being Remembered – a look back on an amazing father

I heard once that you start dying the second after you are born. My dad passed away over 24 years ago. I cannot go a single day without thinking of him. He was a great man. I regret that I…

Remember, lead how you would like to be led.

As I sit here on my last Sunday morning as a Toronto resident, I reflect back on the last 5 years.

Five years ago, my wife and moved to Toronto when I had the opportunity to work alongside two amazing people who I have a world of respect for. Working…
