Joined Date: January 2019 Position: Firefighter

I grew up in North River just outside of town and decided that Truro and area was a perfect place for me to stay and raise a beautiful family.

For the last 21 years I have been married my highschool sweetheart and have 2 wonderful children. My adventurous fun loving daughter who is 19, and my personable and entertaining son who is 14.

I am currently employed with Green Diamond Equipment and have spent the last 15 years or more in the sales profession and have been a firefighter in Colchester County for over 20 years. I am a level 1 trained firefighter, with many training compliments including Medical First Responder, Pump Operations, Scene Safety Office, Incident Command, Media Relations to name a few.

I joined to be a firefighter originally to become more active in my community and that has grown over the years to serve, help and make a difference in this small piece of the world and truly help people when they need it the most.

When time allows, I enjoy spending time at our family cottage with my family in Brule and working on home renovation projects.

I moved to the Truro Brigade as it challenges me to better my skills and challenges me to learn new skills and provide the best service to my community possible. It has opened up more doors for me to advance my skills sets and develop new ones.

If I were to offer any advice to anyone thinking of joining a fire brigade, I would say just do it. It is not always easy, and it will have its challenges but in the end the friends, family and rewards will be worth it in the end. There is always something for everybody.
